Day Services

At Day Services we empower Guests to create the most meaningful life imaginable.

Our aim is to get people participating fully in their community. We wholeheartedly support our Guests' right to be productive workers by holding jobs in the community, becoming contributors of goodwill by way of volunteer opportunities, and being valued neighbors and friends through social and recreational activities. By taking a holistic approach and matching resources and education, each person has the opportunity to build the most meaningful life imaginable. All services are provided in a WOW! atmosphere available exclusively at American Training. Contact Gail Roberts  

Day Services makes available four (4) distinct areas of focus, each with its own unique features:

Our Options Program is an innovative concept that enables Guests to enjoy productive days filled with activities which promote motivation and success through community involvement, recreation, and volunteer opportunities. With education, training, job placement and targeted encouragement, it offers a unique combination of employment and day-habilitation services in a safe and supportive environment.

We work closely with Guests and their families/care providers to determine which opportunities will be the best fit. The perfect day will look different for each Guest because it is customized to each individual need.

Here is a good example of a Guest-specific, individual plan designed to make the most of our services and a person’s interests.

“One Guest has a job bagging groceries at Market Basket three days a week. Since he is passionate about animals, he also volunteers at the MSPCA on Tuesdays. Having some challenges with communication, the Options Program gives him access to consultation services with a speech therapist. With his communication needs being met, he is better able to excel at his job and his volunteer experience as well.”

Our Guest-centered approach translates into more meaningful lives for those we serve.

The Day Hab program primarily addresses medical, clinical and therapeutic needs of each Guest. With a concentration on sensorimotor, communication, social, independent living, affective and behavior development, it is designed to improve communication and self-help skills in both traditional and innovative settings. Nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech and language therapy are also provided for people with a wide range of abilities, interests, and skills.

Although all activities are goal-specific, they are also meaningful and functional to each Guest, offering a fun yet challenging component to their day.

Our Day-to-Day Therapeutic Fun component encourages Guests to choose activities, as well as opportunities, offered by organizations such as MSPCA Volunteer Projects, the YMCA and local libraries.

StarWorks builds confidence and skills leading to employment for people of all levels of abilities and challenges, those already having a marketable skill, those with limited or no skills, and those with limited or no working experience.

By assessing current abilities, determining which marketable skills ought to be developed to become employed, and providing vocational and personal counseling, we get people closer to becoming fully involved with their community.

Identifying an array of resources available both within and outside American Training not only makes the process more likely to succeed. It gives each Guest a reference to access future services to keep and maintain their job.

With a new-found confidence and belief in themselves, it is easy to see how much more each person’s life matters.
