No Barriers is designed for adults with developmental disabilities who also have challenging behaviors while accessing the community. Some Day Programs are not staffed or equipped to address these specific issues. Our 1:1 and 1:2 staffing ratios help us accommodate a wide variety of clients.
All clients are picked up from their homes by our staff each day. No Barriers can be flexible with pick-up times and locations depending on the client's individual needs.
*Note: To be able to attend No Barriers Individuals must be able to ride in a vehicle Safely & Free of Aggressive Behaviors or Incontinence.
Individualized Behavior Plans
Our program emphasizes behavior modification techniques advised by clinical psychologist Dr. Steven Heidorn PhD. No Barriers staff are trained in positive behavior management skills enabling our clients to function more appropriately in their community, socially and at home.
No Barriers is a day program that operates Monday-Friday and each client is out for 4 or 6 hours. Some clients are only with No Barriers 2 days a week and others are with us Monday-Friday.
