CSDD provides job placement, job coaching, and follow-along services to individuals desiring community employment.
CSDD offers a time-limited, intensive job skills training program for individuals transitioning into community job placements. Most of the training occurs at community-based sites and focuses on each individual's needs and preferences. The outcome of this program is community employment.
CSDD teaches vocational skills through the use of contract work to individuals who prefer a more sheltered environment. Contract work includes light assembly, packaging and collating. Community, social and behavioral skills are also part of the program.
CSDD uses a variety of locations to teach community, mobility, recreational, and job skills. Sites include volunteer placements, senior centers, fitness centers, beauty salons, and horseback riding among others. CSDD assists individuals in exploring new options to determine interests and preferences, and develops programming accordingly.
CSDD introduces individuals to new and exciting recreational activities. Activities are coordinated based on consumers' expressed interests. At least one community-based activity is offered daily. Favorites include sporting events, movies, continuing education classes and seasonal events. For those who don't want to go into the community, games, arts and crafts, cooking, and other activities are available at the center.
