Day Habilitation Without Walls Vs. Regular Day Habilitation Programs

Day Habilitation without Walls provides services in the community and is not based in a facility or “within walls”. The Individuals will generally meet in the community or are transported to places in the community and leave from a location in the community. A regular Day Habilitation program often provides services that are site based or in a facility and have times when a group will utilize the community.
