Autism Services Center opened its Guyan Day Program (GDP) in November 1992 along Route 10 near West Hamlin, West Virginia. It was established to provide a much-needed service for individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities who no longer attend public school.
Our Guyan Day Program provides job skills training, volunteer work and employment. Programs are developed to assist individuals in becoming more independent and knowledgeable in areas such as academics, basic living skills, communication, computers, vocational options, social and leisure skills and in finding new interests.
Each person attending the GDP has a service coordinator and an interdisciplinary team which meets at least bi-annually, or as needed, to review a program plan which outlines their goals and objectives.
The team and the individual work together to decide which pursuits will provide the most benefit for that person.
