Services focus on enabling the individual to attain or maintain his or her maximum functional level in completing activities of daily living and instrumental activities of daily living and shall be coordinated with any physical, occupational, or speech therapies in the service plan. In addition, day habilitation services may serve to reinforce skills or lessons taught in other settings. Day habilitation also includes assistance with acquisition, retention, or improvement in self-help, socialization and adaptive skills which takes place in a non-residential setting, separate from the home or facility in which the individual resides. Activities and environments are designed to foster the acquisition of skills, greater independence and personal choice.
