    Day Program / Vocational Services

    We offer a traditional day program based skill building at CWO is organized around interest area classes such as music, art, and gaming. Each person served makes daily choices of activities and is free and welcome to make continual choices throughout the day. Through participating in the various activities individuals may work on fine and gross motor skills, following instructions, completion, safety, problem solving and improving attention.

    Community Integration & Skill Building

    Each month the individuals engaged in various skill building community events and activities meet to create their monthly community calendar. Using the Community Picture Book each individual has input into creating the agreed upon calendar. Each peer group discusses, negotiates and works together to arrive at a mutually agreed upon set of community activities for the month. Staff and supervisors have input into the specific logistics involved, the calendar is posted and the group is assigned one of the vehicles (by color) so that everyone knows what events are scheduled and which vehicle to use each day.

    While in the community individuals work on skills such as task completion, showing up on time, working together, and follow through. Individual needs, wants, and goals are focused on with each person while completing the various community tasks.

    Some of the community activities may include but are not limited to:
    • Meals on Wheels
    • Delivering Magazines to Nursing Homes
    • Visiting with friends who have retired from CWO programs.

    An additional focus with each of these community activities is making one-on-one connections between individuals by finding out their likes and dislikes, such as which magazine is their favorite? What meals does someone prefer? Why is my regular volunteer absent? A new volunteer may work on something as simple as getting a meal to the door and saying hello. Over time deeper connections are created to the point where individuals may spend considerable time together.

    Other community activities may include but are not limited to:
    • Folding clothes and sorting merchandise at the local clothing bank/thrift store (Tried & True in Wayne)
    • Delivering shredded paper (produced by a CWO customer’s shredding business) to the Humane Society for use in the animal crates and pens.

    Again, a focus is placed on making connections with people and at the humane society with the animals through taking them out for walks and play time.
