Impact Day Habilitation

The IMPACT program at Ability Connection is a goal-driven day program and training center for adults with disabilities. This program provides individuals, ages 16 and older, the opportunity to attain personal goals through life skills, education, personal growth, training, recreation and leisure activities, community inclusion, and socialization. Our IMPACT program is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The program operates in our Headquarters and Greater DFW Service Center.

Our IMPACT team works with each individual, family, caregiver and caseworker to tailor each client’s goals, both long and short-term, to their individual needs and abilities. The ultimate goal of IMPACT is to encourage and increase the independence of each person, helping not only them, but their families as well, live more successfully with a disability.

Our FOCUS Program at Ability Connection is designed for members who benefits from hand over hand assistance with goals and daily functions. The term FOCUS means we work closely with each member to enhance their sensory experience, based on their unique needs, while providing exceptional personal care. The FOCUS program is designed for individuals for whom the life impact of their disability is most significant.  Participants benefit from interactions with staff, volunteers and their peers.

What makes our IMPACT and FOCUS programs unique is our onsite nursing staff available to help with any medical issues that may arise while attending the program. This onsite medical staff helps give our clients’ families and caregivers peace of mind. We also offer physical therapy services to those who qualify. IMPACT also offers a summer only program for individuals from 16 to 22 years of age who are still attending school.

Home & Community Based Services, and Private pay rates are applicable.
