Comprehensive programs designed to enhance the quality of life for adults in Arizona with developmental disabilities are having a positive impact across the state.
Programs, such as those available at One Step Beyond, include employment development, culinary training, life skills training, performing and fine arts and sports and fitness programs. The programs help improve the quality of life for adults with autism, Down syndrome, traumatic brain injuries and other intellectual disabilities.
The successes are demonstrated through participants who are receiving employment opportunities from community vocational partners, have started attending college classes and have experienced multi-day trips to theme parks.
