All EXCEED Programs are Individually Tailored, Person-Centered, and Guided by Client Cholce.
The Supported Employment program offers job matching and individual placements within the community. IClients receive on-going support as needed in order to maintain or enhance employment. Supervised Work Teams (enclaves) are an extension of the Supported Employment program. Clients are placed in industry, in small groups with an on-site supervisor. These clients learn and perform various jobs within industry in a competitive employment environment. Clients are referred to enclaves from other EXCEED programs, or from outside referral sources. Clients enhance work and social skills to transition to Individual Placement or competitive employment.
The Work Training Center (WTC) provides vocational training for persons that wish to develop marketable work skills. Clients have the opportunity to work on a variety of contracts including packaging, assembly, labeling, light manufacturing, and mailers. In addition to specific work skills, the Work Training Center program stresses the development of appropriate work habits and attitudes. Clients in this program spend their time in paid work and vocational skills training and work towards transitioning to the Supported Employment Program.
The Adult Developmental Center (ADC) provides basic living skills training, which assists clients in reaching their maximum level of independence and access into the community. Our curriculum includes self-advocacy, mobility training, money management, functional reading and writing, pre-vocational and daily living skills training.
The Situational Assessment is designed to provide an assessment to identify barriers to community-based employment for adults with developmental disabilities, learning disabilities, mental health challenges, traumatic brain injury, and/or physical disabilities.
The Casa del Valle Residential Program provides long-term housing, care and training for adults with developmental disabilities in a 4,400 square foot, 14 bed facility on approximately 0.9 acres.
Since 1987 EXCEED has received accreditation for our Work Training Centers and Supported Employment Programs from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities.
