The Habilitative Services Program (HSP), funded through a contract with the
 Massachusetts Department of Development Services, provides highly skilled therapists who provide comprehensive therapeutic services in occupational and physical therapy, adapted physical education, and orientation and mobility to adult residents of the Wrentham Developmental Center.  The Habilitative Services Program supports quality of life and care for residents, maximizing their level of skill development while promoting residents’ capacity to maintain their functional ability across varied environmental settings.  Activities to promote wellness and fitness play a prominent role in the work of the HSP team.

This unique partnership meets EDCO’s objective to provide adult services in partnership with DDS.  In FY 15 alone, over 250 adults with developmental disabilities received related services through EDCO’s Wrentham Habilitative Program.  The Habilitative Services Project is dedicated to a set of core values that contribute to its mission and philosophy.  These values include:

  • Respect for human differences
  • Recognition that in diversity there is strength
  • Commitment to quality and continuous improvement
  • Acknowledgement of the resident as the primary focus of all efforts and activity
  • Responsibility to open communication and consensus decision making
  • Dedication to responsible stewardship of public resources
