Chino Valley/Prescott Overview
Adult Developmentally Disabled Residential Program
Intermountain Centers has been providing residential support services to individuals who have been diagnosed with developmental disabilities in Yavapai County since 1978. Operating from offices located in Chino Valley, Intermountain’s programs for residents of Northern Arizona currently serve individuals diagnosed with developmental disabilities both in small group or family residences and through the Day Program.
Individuals who have been diagnosed with developmental disabilities attending the Day Program are both residents of Intermountain’s group and developmental homes as well as community members who reside at home with their families. The Day Program participants spend five days a week in a relaxed educational setting where they receive both individualized support of skill development mandated in their Support Plan, and stimulation of leisure and recreational interests through enjoyable group activities.
Each member’s strengths and needs are assessed and their individual goals are set by their person-centered team. Intermountain Day Program staff provide positive reinforcement for each member in order to support the acquisition of positive practical life skills, to increase participation in daily self care and family responsibilities, and to build communication and pro-social skills. The development of self-management skills and self esteem are universal goals for all participants.
The Day Program site is located in rural Chino Valley, a pastoral property with easily accessible outdoor spaces. A maximum of eighteen (18) participants attends each day.
The daily programming is multi-faceted and incorporates a wide spectrum of activities that are educational, vocational, and recreational, depending on each individual’s goals. Learning opportunities might include acquisition of communication skills for non-verbal members to expansion of vocabulary for verbal members, mastery of the alphabet and counting numbers, typing and navigation on a computer, money counting and transferring, manipulation of art media, making music, and interacting with strangers in the community. Field trips to community-based events, appointments, and visits to local restaurants for lunch augment the routine designed to collectively and individually benefit the members.
The hours of operation are 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Referrals are made through the Department of Economic Security/Department of Developmental Disabilities.
