Group Day Habilitation Services
Group Day Habilitation or Group Day Habilitation as it is referred to in the field, represents one of the day service options for persons enrolled in the NYS-OPWDD – Home and Community Based Waiver.
Day Habilitation Services provides adults with development disabilities the opportunity to increase their individuality, independence and productivity while increasing their inclusion in their community. Transportation to and from the day service will be available to those individuals who do not travel independently.
