Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

The B.E.E. Program was a three-phase project that was completed to develop a community- and occupation-based program for adults with I/DD. The study examined the feasibility and acceptability of implementing this program in an established community facility. The program involved two individuals who participated in an eight-week program that targeted occupational exposure through a community volunteer experience and education sessions aimed at increasing independence with activities of daily living and instrumental activities of daily living.
