Mission Statement
The goal of New Directions is to prepare young adults to live independent lives. Our program is comprehensive and client-centered, providing an individualized service plan for each participant. Support is provided through a multi-disciplinary clinical approach, and incorporates educational, vocational, independent living, health, social and recreational goals. New Directions supports students with executive functioning deficits due to a variety of developmental and/or psychological disorders who are willing to participate in the program and capable of learning the skills needed to live independently. Services can be gradually tapered to allow students to exercise the independence they have learned in the program.
