Our Philosophy

butterfly2We practice and believe in a community based approach that allows our clients the most direct and effective route to gaining a higher level of independence. Our philosophy of treatment stresses a functionally oriented approach.

From this perspective, we tend to make much less use of “paper and pencil“ rehabilitation tasks that form the backbone of treatment in many other settings. We begin by assessing the specific strengths and weaknesses of each client, identifying those areas in which they are independent, those areas in which they are dependent and those in which treatment can reasonably be expected to yield functional improvement. From this starting point we seek to maximize client independence, functional adaptation and recovery.

Community based rehabilitation means two things to us:

1) Focusing our treatment on helping individuals to gain the practical daily skills that they need to live independently within their own chosen community.

2) Using naturalistic settings and available community resources as a part of treatment to the
greatest extent possible.
