DDI's Home and Communtiy Services are available through Early Intervention, Preschool and School Age Programs.



A full range of services can be provided either in the home or a community setting.  These services include:

  • Speech Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Physical Therapy
  • Special Instruction
  • Parent Training

Specialized parent training for those families whose child is diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder and/or whose child demonstrates challenging behaviors that may preclude the child from a less restrictive educational setting. All staff complete DDI's training in Applied Behavior Analysis and are approved by their supervisor to provide home and community based services.


Home based services are intended to reinforce and facilitate the carryover of skills presented in a center-based program. Parent training is provided to ensure generalization of skills within the home and other community environments.
