The Mount St. Joseph Developmental (Day) Training Program provides individualized care for men and women with developmental disabilities from the residential program and the local community. It is licensed by the Department of Human Services (DHS).
Daily schedules of therapeutic, educational and recreational activities are offered based on the preferences and needs of the individuals. Music recreation, language and communication, basic academic skills, arts and crafts, gross/fine motor activities, personal living skills, relaxation, sensory stimulation and aquatics are some of the therapeutic skills available.
Many of the residents participate in workshop programs Monday through Friday at off campus sites. Workshop jobs include sorting, assembling, packing, labeling, mailing and collating.
These tasks help increase fine motor skills and teach teamwork. Residents also benefit from an increase in self-esteem and a sense of pride associated with a job well done.
