Joining a Program at Aaron’s Acres
When we meet a new child or young adult, our Program Director will personally review the information about the child. His/her strengths, capabilities, and goals are discussed to ensure that the program will meet the entire family’s needs. An intensive staff orientation also takes place so that everyone understands each participant’s needs and capabilities. Each day is designed so that the proper behavior interventions and positive reinforcement schedules are created. A nurse is also present at all programs to ensure all children’s and young adults’ medical needs are met.
Where others see disability, we see possibility. Contact Aaron’s Acres to learn more about our programs.
