Programs & Services - Day Programs

Day Programs in Northern New Jersey are currently the best existing approach to proactively maintain the hard-won skills acquired over the pre-21 educational entitlement years. It is highly advisable to pre-plan for a seamless transition into an appropriate Day Program after graduation from Special Education, because Regression (the rapid loss of hard-won learning and skills) can be experienced in as few as 6 months after graduation from Special Education, if appropriate Day Programming for continuing development is not in place.
