Building Abilities Day Program

In partnership with Cisco RTP, Building Abilities Day Program supports adults with IDD and autism by providing a safe and engaging space which encourages making choices, learning new skills, and making new friends. Participants explore many different avenues to support personal independence and promote social, physical, and emotional well-being.

  • Basic independent living skills
  • Socialization with peers
  • Advocating for rights, needs, and choices
  • Developing identity, self-awareness, and self-esteem
