More often then not, people hear that I work for a company which provides services for adults, and some children, with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and they have no idea what that means. Most people have heard of a day program, but think it's more like daycare compared to what it really is. We are not a daycare, and I plan to tell you exactly what we do and why we do it!
