Day Program Services

ALFA's day program is a facility-based special needs program, which means the overall staff to client ration is maintained at 1:3 to accommodate special needs. Whether the goal is earning a paycheck, learning new life skills, participating in recreational activities, or just getting out in the community, our day program is designed to meet the needs of each individual.

Behavioral Support

ALFA understands that some people with developmental disabilities have special behavioral needs and challenges and offers behavioral support through a qualified behavior specialist. Along with the resident's family and doctors, and in conjunction with ALFA staff, the behavior specialist develops a course of treatment to maximize positive behavior skills.
