In Delaware, we support inclusion and individual lives through our Intellectual Disability Services and Autism Services. We work to help each person establish a true home and valued roles within the community.

We offer Residential and Behavior Support Services for people with intellectual disability and autism. Within Residential Services, people establish themselves in their home and build their skills to live independently and participate meaningfully in the community. Through Behavior Support Services, each person develops an individualized plan to develop their skills based on their strengths, challenges, and goals. Both services focus on inclusion and building strong connections with family and the community.

Relationships Matter

Intellectual Disability Services

Autism Services

Relationships make a difference in people’s lives, and we respect and support each person’s personal life. When one woman wanted to live with her boyfriend, we figured out a way to help her make it happen. We work hard to make sure people have opportunities to build and maintain meaningful relationships.

Innovation and Adaptation

“I’m a go-getter,” says Tracey Eastman. “I like to get things done.” Inspired by her experience at the 2019 June Summit, where she learned about the power of sharing her story and raising her voice to address issues that matter, she hosted an advocacy group meeting at our office in Delaware. The meeting was so successful that they soon had to find a larger meeting place.

People with disability have an important leadership role in the global disability inclusion movement. Tracey and other advocates have reached out to legislators to discuss issues that are important to them, including employment, and make sure people with disability are included.

While the COVID-19 pandemic has caused many challenges, it has also presented many opportunities. In Delaware, Direct Support Professionals and the people we serve adapted to the changing times. We used Social Stories share clear, reliable information explaining the virus, hand-washing, social distancing, mask-wearing, and stay-at-home orders. In addition to adapting to new routines, the people we serve and staff came up with a variety of activities to keep busy and stay connected at home, using technology for everything from connecting with friends and family to finding new recipes and games.
