Executives from PARC (Putnam Achieve, Reach, Connect), Nancy Miringoff, Associate Executive Director, and Pepi Diaz-Salazar, Director of Day Habilitation, discuss PARC’s many services to children and adults with developmental disabilities and brain injuries. Based in Putnam County but covering a huge geographical area beyond, PARC provides a variety of services, including preschool for children with autism, residential homes, day habilitation and vocational training, and support groups for those suffering from brain injuries. Day habilitation is assistance in a non-residential setting with self-help, socialization, and adaptive skills. Day habilitation at PARC focuses on socialization and cognitive skills necessary for community-based jobs and volunteer services such as delivering meals for Meals on Wheels. PARC also provides extensive, life-long services to more than 650 people each year after they have aged out of the school system. Volunteers are always needed to share their expertise.
