The aim of Day Habilitation Programs is to increase an individual’s independence and ability to assume adult social roles through developmental skills training and clinical supports.

Berkshire County Arc operates three Day Habilitation programs. Our programs are located in Dalton, Pittsfield and Lee, Massachusetts. We support more than 150 individuals at the three locations.

Annually, we work with each individual to create a Day Habilitation Service Plan (DHSP). This plan is an integrated individual support plan which consists of coordinated, goal oriented services for every person we support. Our qualified and licensed therapeutic staff (which includes a Physical Therapist, an Occupational Therapist and Speech and Language Pathologists) may make specific recommendations to address each person’s needs. Each person receives nursing support as well.
