Meaningful Day, is the first hands-on manual for Direct Support Professionals working in day programs as well as residential services. Meaningful Day is the result of a programmatic vision for persons with significant disabilities who are not part of the supported employment paradigm. We recognized that there were limited resources available to guide day program managers and staff on meaningful and dynamic activities. The quality of the day program was dependent on the creativity and commitment of the individual managing the program. This curriculum will fill the resource gap and set the standard for day program staff in developing meaningful and engaging activities, which will positively impact people with disabilities.

Meaningful Day was piloted in targeted Community Options' day programs with much success. We are confident the application of the ideas and methodologies provided in this guide will make a significant improvement in the quality of your program, the engagement of your staff, and the overall satisfaction of individuals attending a truly meaningful day program.
