Facility-Based Habilitation

Facility-Based Habilitation Services are services provided outside of the participant’s home in an approved facility that support learning and assistance in the areas of self-care, sensory/motor development, socialization, daily living skills, communication, community living, and social skills. Facility settings are defined as non-residential, non-integrated settings that take place within the same buildings for the duration of the service rather than being out in the community.

Group size limitations:
 Small (4:1 or smaller)  Medium (5:1 to 10:1)  Larger (larger than 10:1 but no larger than 16:1)
