Developmental Therapy Classes



Journeys to Discovery (Developmental Therapy) is a program that teaches independent living skills to people with intellectual disabilities. People can learn to do more things for themselves, like sewing, first aid, basic sign language, money skills, budgeting, volunteering and how to safely access the community.

Medicaid pays for these therapies. We also take private pay clients that pay the same amount that we would get from Medicaid for this service.

To get started a person-centered planning meeting is held with a Chrysalis Developmental Specialist and a person’s Targeted Service Coordinator. At the meeting goals are discussed so that we might best meet the needs of our friends.

Therapy (classes) will be held at Chrysalis or at sites in the community.  Each person served has individualized goals written for them.  These goals can range from:

  • Safety Skills
  • Hygiene and Grooming
  • Telephone Skills
  • Volunteer Opportunities
  • Community Access Opportunities
  • Time and Calendar Skills
  • Social Interaction
  • Stress Management and many more…..
