EXCEED's program fullfills the need for education, work and skills training and behaviors training for adults with developmental and other disabilities.  Without EXCEED programs a great number of disabled adults would not have any employement future and would not be given the opportunity to interact with other in their community; thus perpetuating the myth that adults with developmental and other disabilities cannot function as part of mainstream America.

Adult Developmental Center (ADC)
EXCEED's Adult Developmental Centers provide basic living skills training, which assists clients in reaching their maximum level of independence and access into the community.  Our curriculum includes self-advocacy, mobility training, money management, functional reading and writing, pre-vocational and daily living skills training.  Clients work daily to develop skill to enable them to transition to the Work Activity Center.

Work Activity Center (WAC)
EXCEED's Work Activity Centers provide vocational training for persons that wish to develop marketable work skills.  Clients have the opportunity to work on a variety of contracts including packaging, assembly, labeling, light manufacturing, and mailers.  In addition to specific work skills, the Work Activity Center program stresses the development of appropriate work habits and attitudes.  Clients in this program spend their time in paid work and vocational skills training and work towards transitioning to the Supported Employment Program.

Vocational Training and Job Placement
EXCEED’s Supported Employment program offers job matching and individual placements within the community. When an individual enters the program, a match of the client’s skills to the appropriate work environment is made. Initially, a Job Coach is assigned to the individual to provide training. Clients receive on-going support as needed in order to maintain or enhance employment. Clients usually work 20 or more hours per week and earn competitive wages.

Supervised Work Teams (enclaves) are an extension of the Supported Employment program. Clients are placed in industry, in small groups with an on-site supervisor. These clients learn and perform various jobs within Industry in a competitive employment environment. Clients enhance work and social skills to go on to Individual Placement or competitive employment. Clients are referred to enclaves from other EXCEED programs, or from outside referral sources.
