The Independent Living Skills (ILS) Day Program works with Deaf and Developmentally Disabled individuals to enhance and maximize their self-sufficiency and quality of life. This is done through the application of our pre-vocational and day-habilitation services.
The pre-vocational activities are geared towards learning and performing tasks to develop skill sets. Examples of such activities are: collating colored index cards, labeling envelopes, assembling brochures, packaging utensils, and working with Deaf-REACH’s HIV Prevention program by assembling prevention kits that are distributed at events. The day-habilitation activities include: arts & crafts, movies, and community outings to a variety of locations. Our consumers have visited the museums in DC and parks in the Greater Washington area as well as educational tours of the police station, the library and the like. We strive to meet the individual needs of every client and encourage their success.
