Milestones of Independence

Help us remain the resource any of us might need

Our goal is to be the resource any one of us could need at any point in our lives. We help individuals with disabilities achieve milestones in independence from birth through later life. We are there at the beginning with early intervention therapy for babies / toddlers and therapy services for children. We grow with your family with autism services, camp and respite programs. As your family ages, we assist with transition services, employment assistance, veteran programs and community day supports. As your family changes, we provide answers for independence through assistive technology, deaf services, home modification services and driver evaluation/training.
