Developmental Disability & Traumatic Brain Injury Services
With the right amount and kinds of support, people with developmental disabilities or traumatic brain injuries can live full and happy lives along with their families, friends and community members.
"Full lives" look different from person to person. Some individuals may be working, living in their own apartment, and socializing with friends and family on the weekend. They may be an active church member, involved in a drama club, or enjoy dancing. Others may live at home with their family, or in a home with two or three other people where each person pursues their own interests. They may go to a Center during the day where they are involved in activities of their choice, or do volunteer work.
Some individuals who come to TLS have needs that require staff to have particular skills. Some may communicate using sign language; others have been labeled with autism. Some have special medical issues and others are facing the complications of aging. These are just a few examples of the types of situations where TLS staff are prepared to offer assistance.
Ultimately at TLS we focus on each individual we serve, helping them to face whatever issues come up as they work toward creating the life they wish to have.
