Gallant Therapy Services is proud to offer Community Supports Services for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and Autism. Our GTS Community Supports day program staff are caring, attentive, trauma informed Certified Direct Support Professionals who participate in monthly continuing education. They take groups into the community to increase fitness, improve social skills, build friendships and relationships, and explore work and healthy leisure interests. Outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing, photography, sports, swimming, and gardening are just a few of the community based activities offered. We also guide clients to volunteer; building work skills, self esteem, and identity by giving back to the community they live in. GTS is proud to be almost 100% community based and also offer well appointed centers with stimulating and fun activities such as cooking, Zumba, yoga, art club, cornhole, ping pong, darts, movies, "family" dinners, themed dance nights, holiday parties, training for Special Olympics, and much more.
Each GTS client is valued as an individual and has a voice in everything we do here at GTS. Clients are part of the committee that creates the programming at GTS and every day they choose their own schedule based on their interests and preferences!
