Supported Living Services

Supported Living Services (SLS) consists of a broad range of services to adults with intellectual disabilities who choose to live in their own homes. SLS may include:

  • Assistance with selecting and moving into a home
  • Choosing personal attendants and housemates
  • Acquiring household furnishings
  • Common daily living skills activities and emergencies
  • Becoming a participating member in community life
  • Managing personal financial affairs, as well as other skill supports

These services help individuals exercise meaningful choice and control in their daily lives, including where and with whom to live. SLS is designed to foster nurturing relationships and full membership in the community, while working toward long-range personal goals. Because these may be life-long concerns, SLS is offered for as long and as often as needed, with the flexibility required to meet a person’s changing needs over time, and without regard solely to the level of disability. DABS works with the consumer to establish and maintain a safe, stable and independent life in their own home. This program can be provided up to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Behavioral Analysis

It’s important to understand an individual’s specific behavioral needs in order to achieve success.  Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is our go-to field of study for better understanding the behavioral needs of the participant. We can provide a professional Behavioral Consultant certified in ABA to conduct a thorough evaluation and provide behavior intervention recommendations as requested by the Regional Center and/or ID Team.

DABS specializes in providing intellectual disability services in the most challenging cases, especially when other agencies can’t help. When things get difficult, we won’t give up on you. We respond to all referrals within 24 hours, no matter how challenging. We ensure that the entire team of supports is involved from day one. Due to the nature of our service, we work 365 days per year — no exceptions. We work with severe behavior presentations, forensic participants, and in highly sensitive scenarios requiring tempered and experienced attention.

We offer a 360 view of the system, including a deep understanding of participant needs and Regional Center requirements. We offer three decades of knowledge about how the community at large can work for our participants. This allows us to place the most difficult participants in the most supportive environment possible, quickly, with dignity and with a programmatic structure built for success.
