In 2005, a mother’s son suffered a traumatic brain injury due to a ski accident at the age of seventeen. At the local high school, she found the special services her son needed, which lasted until he turned 21. Her search for a similar exceptional day program became a challenge because there were few options.This disappointing discovery inspired her to reach out to other concerned parents and professionals, and a board of directors was soon formed. Work began to create a local, quality, stimulating, all inclusive day program available for adults with disabilities. Having the goal to connect these adults with their community and with a variety of enriching opportunities, the name Connecting Point of Park Cities was chosen.
After years of planning and fundraising, the doors of Connecting Point opened on June 24, 2014.
Connecting Point of Park Cities (CPPC)provides a community-based day program for individuals who have aged out of public schools. Each weekday, we welcome individuals with a variety of abilities to grow through a curriculum based on Communication, Activities of Daily Living andPre-vocational and Social Skill development. Working in partnership with their family we develop individual goals for each Teammate(participant).
We are different. We are small by design with an experienced staff committed to making each day at CPPC engaging and rewarding. Our staff to participant ratio of 1:5, a Program Manager with 15+ years in Special Education, and a Program Nurse we meet the developmental and physical needs required for our Teammates to thrive.
