What is Day Habilitation?

Day Habilitation services are therapeutic day services offered to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). Their condition makes it challenging for participants to live in the community.

The Open Roads programs provide services to help these individuals maintain independent living skills. Our goal is to enable participants to live successfully within their community.

The Open Roads programs provide:

  • Engaging group activities such as Zumba, Music Therapy, and various clubs
  • Individualized behavioral and medical supports
  • Specialized programming for those diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Service planning centered around each participant
  • Meaningful community engagement
  • A full Interdisciplinary Service Team


Who is a good fit for the Open Roads programs?

Participants must be at least 22 years of age and have received a diagnosis of I/DD prior to age 22.

To qualify, the participant’s must be eligible for Day Habilitation services through MassHealth, however, we also accept private pay.


Open Roads is the right choice.
