All participants must apply, and be accepted to the program, before transferring their McKay scholarship funding!

All participants have individualized academic and behavioral goals and objectives. Academics are a major focus of center activities, since these tasks tend to be the antecedents, or triggers, of the individual's challenging behaviors. Individuals may participate in mathematics, language arts, science, civics, social skills training and advocacy.

Our laundry facilities, roll-in showers and cooking areas allow individuals to work on personal care skills and activities of daily living, increasing independence and broadening the individual's future choices for school and employment. In addition, several computers are available for participant's use.

Community-based activities include touring businesses, accessing local parks and other recreational facilities, and engaging in volunteer work, such as Keep Brevard Beautiful and Meals on Wheels.
