Site-Based Respite Offers Alternative for Individuals with Developmental Disabilities

January 23, 2020 / SCO News

SCO has opened a new Site-Based Respite program, our newest program on Long Island to serve the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities. Located at SCO’s Brentwood offices, the program serves up to 12 teens and adults 16 years and older weekdays from 2:30 to 6:30 pm.

The program is designed to bridge the gap between when day programming ends and the individual’s caregiver arrives home from work. It offers a variety of activities including arts & crafts, games, technology and a relaxation room, giving participants the opportunity to socialize with peers. Homework help is also available for those who attend school.

The Site-Based Respite is part of SCO’s continuum of supports for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities on Long Island.
