Stepping Stones Care Arizona



Habilitation services prepare people with developmental disabilities to live more independently in the community by learning and developing new skills, abilities, and behaviors. Common areas for training include: self-care, communication, socialization, safety, physical and emotional expression, pre-vocational skills, leisure activities, and problem solving. A trained Direct Support Professional, who works one-on-one with the client based on goals and outcomes determined by the individual and his or her team, provides the service. Parents and guardians can often be trained to provide Habilitation services to their adult children.


Respite services are care services provided to the client during which they do not work on specific goals, but rather enjoy leisure time. Caregivers are supervising the client in the client's home or the community, and engage in activities with them.
