Community Habilitation is a 1-to-1 training program that supports individuals in achieving their goals as they develop and enhance the skills needed to live more independently. The focus is on a person's strengths, goals, and critical skills for development. Taking place in small groups, individuals learn skills enabling them to become as independent as possible as an employee/volunteer. With a mix of classroom learning and on-the-job training, the person-centered topics focus on work safety, following directions, multi-tasking, problem-solving, completing tasks, and understanding work culture in order to creat a positive and fulfilling work/volunteer experience.
