The Skill Building program offers services for adults with developmental disabilities. These services help to strengthen their skills and level of independence.
Skill Building offers people a place to learn daily. Each person has a personal plan developed around their needs. This plan, called a person centered plan of service (PCP), may include training in a classroom or activities in the community. It could also include job opportunities. Work opportunities could be transitional work experience (TWE), supported employment (SE), or independent employment (IE).
