Life Enrichment and Pre-Vocational Services

Life Enrichment programs

In many situations, United Cerebral Palsy Team Members participate in services that combine vocational training, and life enrichment programs. The life enrichment program may include: community based recreational and social opportunities, vocational exploration, educational programs, cooking classes, hiking, swimming, and accessing the Internet in our computer labs.

Pre-Vocational Programs

Some people with developmental disabilities may not be involved in a vocational program. They may need assistance with independent living skills before they start training for a job, or they may be past working age and want some help with learning to enjoy their retirement years.

  • UCP helps people learn the skills and address barriers to begin vocational training.
  • A person-directed plan is developed with each individual.
  • A Positive Behavior Supports Team may be involved to address specific barriers.
  • Specialized support services are provided to people with a history of involvement with the criminal justice system.
  • Vocational activities are introduced and necessary life skills are taught to integrate people into the community.

 

Retirement Services

UCP helps people to enjoy and savor retirement. A variety of activities are planned based on each individual’s interests. We focus on continued community involvement.
