OUTLINE: Milestones Program is a life skills and education environment that promotes independence and self-determination. It supports adults with intellectual disabilities and specializes in working with participants that have a dual diagnosis, although the program is not exclusive to people with mental health issues. The goal of the program is to provide a safe, interactive and positive learning environment that can adapt to different peoples learning needs.

STAFFING: Staff to participant ratio is typically 1:5 however staff often accompany participants to a job site to supervise one or more participants. An individual assessment and program plan is designed using a collaborative approach with the participant, families, care-providers and day service staff. All staff have received training in sensory processing disorders, autism, schizophrenia, behavioral and sensory treatment protocols.
