Facility Day Habilitation

Turning Point

Turning Point is CSI's small facility-based day habilitation program.  It is located beside our administrative offices.  The day program is open from 8:00 am- 5:00 pm, Monday-Friday. 

We ask that individuals who choose to utilize the service attend a minimum of 1 day per week between the hours of 9:00 am and 3:00 pm.  This is only the minimum required attendance.  Additional days and hours outside of, but including, 9:00 am- 3:00 pm can be arranged.

Training services and assistance are provided by Support Staff who are trained in areas as required by the Title XIX I/DD Waiver Program, as well as in areas specific to the individual(s) they will be providing services too. 

Transportation to and from the day program is not currently provided by CSI.  Support Staff do provide transportation within the community, as approved by the individual's Interdisciplinary Team (IDT).

Additional information regarding facility-based day habilitation services may be obtained by contacting Julie Boggess, Staff Supervisor.

Overview of Facility-Based Day Habilitation Services

Facility-Based Day Habilitation is a structured program that uses meaningful and productive activities designed to promote the acquisition of skills or maintenance of skills for the member outside the residential home. Services must be based on assessment, be person-centered/goal oriented, and be meaningful/productive activities that are guided by the member’s strengths, needs, wishes, desires, and goals.

Facility-Based Day Habilitation activities must be developed exclusively to address the habilitation and support needs of the member. Activities must consist of programs of instruction/training, supervision and assistance, specialist services and evaluations provided by or under the direct supervision of a Therapeutic Consultant or Behavior Support Professional, if applicable.
