Allied Rehabilitation Centers (a subsidiary of Allied Community Services, Inc.) provides for a variety of rehabilitative and supported employment needs. Placement into any program model is based on LON (level of need), team determination of placement, and most importantly on consumer choice. All our services and programs are consumer driven and recent redesigns/current models allow us to continue to provide the best to those consumers.
For those individuals who are not candidates for supportive or competitive employment, have lower cognitive functioning levels, and have significant deficits in major life activities. Staffing ratios are smaller in this model to provide the additional support and attention for these consumers.
Designed for those individuals who have chosen to not work and/or will not benefit from vocational services. There are three programs within this model to meet the varied needs and preferences of the participants. Services and programs include but are not limited to: community integration, recreational opportunities, gardening, cooking classes, arts and crafts, volunteering, fundraising (giving back to the community), music appreciation, and even pet therapy. Additionally, individuals over the age of 55 enjoy a partnership with the local senior center. Originally designed to best meet the needs of an aging population, this model has expanded significantly as more and more consumers gravitate towards this style of programming.
Individuals with moderate cognitive functioning will benefit from both basic activities of daily living and vocational skills training. Appropriate individuals will have paid work opportunities as available.
WORK ADJUSTMENT PROGRAM
Individuals with moderate to high cognitive functioning who may, at some point in the future, be placed in group or individual competitive employment situations are provided vocational skills training. Those vocationally prepared individuals concentrate on improving appropriate work behaviors and productivity levels to achieve and maintain competitive employment, both in-house and community based.
COMMUNITY WORK CREWS
Individuals with higher cognitive functioning work in small groups of between 4 to 10 consumers per Supervisor at community based sites in competitive employment.
