Supplemental Group Day Habilitation
Gateway Counseling Center strives to encourage all those participating in our program to develop into their most realized selves. Our supplemental program is designed to add on to Day Habilitation services and allow individuals to practice their social skills, make friends, and interact in a safe and supportive setting. During the week, individuals participate in activities designed to promote self-expression, and every week ends with a dance party. Although limited by the weather in the winter, during spring and summer and fall groups go out to surrounding parks, making sure to take advantage of the natural resources. Every weekend, groups see movies, go to malls, bowling allies, and libraries to name a few, practicing community interaction and exploring the resources of our city.
