Life Skills Learning Center is a Day Training Activity Center (DTAC) that provides a safe, clean, welcoming environment where members with intellectual/developmental disabilities engage in training activities that support their individual goals so they can reach their fullest potential. A variety of learning opportunities are offered in small groups each day both in the facility and out in the community. A small sample of training topics includes social skills, self-advocacy and personal health and safety with a specific focus on community integration. We do all of this in an atmosphere that promotes respect and dignity. An exclusive Life Skills membership invitation can be obtained by someone 18 years and up with a referral from Central Valley Regional Center. Contact us today. We’d love to give you a tour and tell you more.

Community Employment Services Integration means a place in the community where an individual with disabilities interacts, and in this case works, with non-disabled individuals. Able’s services promote community integration with all members of the workforce and provides paid work. A job coach meets regularly with CES trainees on the job to help him or her learn the necessary skills and behavior to work independently and provide ongoing support. As the trainee gains mastery of the job, they have the opportunity to seek competitive integrated employment if they should choose to do so.
Competitive Integrated Employment
Integration means being part of the working class in our community.
Competitive Integrated Employment (CIE) represents an important part of the future for our organization. Through integrated employment, we train individuals with developmental disabilities specific job skills so that they can be competitive in the workplace. Integrated employment is critical to a segment of the population we serve and is specifically for consumers who have already developed good work skills and have a successful work history. We offer entry-level jobs in many different types of workplaces including grocery stores, restaurants, offices, coffee shops and other small to large businesses. Able will help match consumers to the right job and offers frequent job coaching support for the first 90 days and ongoing coaching for as long as a client remains employed. Case management services are also available as needed. Contact us for more information on how to be part of this fantastic program!
