Developmental Disability Services

Developmental Day Support

There are three developmental day support programs in the counties of Brunswick, Mecklenburg and Halifax which provide day support programming for adults with intellectual disability.

  • Persons with intellectual disability 22 years of age and older (or age 18 with parental consent) receive training in independent living skills, basic educational training, self-help and community integration skills.
  • Individualized service plans are developed for each consumer using a person-centered planning approach and consumers' needs and preferences are assessed and continually monitored.
  • Service Coordination services coordinate a person's referral to and participation in the training center program.

Service Coordination

Individuals may be assigned a Service Coordinator, who monitors services needed and develops an individual service plan. Intellectual disability Service Coordinators provide ongoing assessments of consumers, refer and link them to needed services and oversee the continuity of services provided for the consumers. Service Coordinators also provide discharge planning and referral coordination for aftercare and follow-up services.

Residential Services

  1. Group Homes
    Board group homes provide residential services to adults with intellectual disability. Referrals are processed through service coordinators. Individualized service plans are developed for each resident with specific behavioral objectives. Close follow-up is maintained with families and referring agencies. Consumers receive support services at the Developmental Day Support or other appropriate service locations.

  2. Semi-Independent Living (One-bedroom Apartments)
