All day programming through Belk Model includes 100% community based programming in which clients are offered supervised access to their surrounding communities. This allows clients to build a better understanding of community resources available to them and to build natural supports in the community. Supervision from day staff aids clients in recognizing appropriate ways to behave in a variety of settings and to regularly build their social skills in meaningful, exciting ways!
When participating in community connections, clients are matched to staff and activities that most closely match their interests. Clients most frequently receive one on one support in the community to ensure individualized supervision and support is offered throughout the day. In cases where clients prefer to be in a group setting, clients are in groups no larger than three.
