Are there habilitation centers in the UK? What are they called? What is their approach?
In Washington State, we have specific habilitation centers that support individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities who are working through targeted personal challenges to living in the broader community, such as aggressive behaviors, elopement, theft, and the like. These centers provide 24-hour residential care with continuous formal and informal teaching (active treatment) with the aim of supporting the individuals in gaining the skills they need to successfully integrate back into the broader community.
