Tailored Day Services
Pre-Training for Employment
Our Tailored Day service is a specialized support option where a tailored day specialist works 1:1 with a trainee to support the individual's needs in the workplace, post-secondary educational pursuits, advocacy, person-driven planning and general community integration.
Our specialist is pre-trained before working with the trainee to make sure he/she/they is aware of any safety, behavior or health issues that may impact the provision of services and to make sure the specialist knows how to support the trainee. All Tailored Day staff will begin the service with individualized curriculum in place that contains specific goals and measures progress to make sure progress is being made and goals addressed.
For more information, please contact: TailoredDay@BeaconsNorthCounty.com
SDRC Clients: Under the Lanterman Act (§ 4688.21), the client may have several hours a week of 1:1 support funded by the SDRC to help the client learn skills to improve the client's independence and work towards the client's life goals. The possibilities are endless, but common uses of TDSO are support for educational pursuits, job coaching, development of community routines, transportation support, creation and implementation of a community-based fitness routine, and more! Give us your goals and we'll give you 8 hours of highly individualized support.
