Development

For over 25 years, New Concepts for Living has been providing a distinguished day program for individuals 21 years and older with developmental disabilities. Unlike other programs in our area, NCFL participants benefit from well-rounded skills training plans, and unmatched activities calendar, on-site behavioral services and the availability of an on-site nurse.

Our Adult Achievement Center not only offers state-of-the-art care and recreation for our participants, but it also provides much-needed respite for the caregivers of these extraordinary individuals. NCFL staff is trained to encourage and assist participants in order to enable them to reach their full potential while ensuring they receive the dignity and respect they deserve.
