The Tress Road Program, located in Prospect, Connecticut, is a handicapped-accessible, home-like setting for youth who have specialized medical and behavioral needs. The youth that reside in the house also have developmental disabilities including cerebral palsy, autism and/or intellectual disabilities.
The program is intended to be a long-term placement with the goal of assisting the youth with attaining their maximum level of independence. Individual growth through positive staff and peer role modeling, individual teaching strategies and incidental teaching as well as other learning techniques occurs over an extended period of time. Youth residing in the home receive support in a wide variety of areas including education, recreation, socialization and activities of daily living. Youth are involved in the planning, implementation, and continued development of appropriate services and opportunities. Individual service plans build on each child’s strengths to overcome barriers to attaining their goals.
