Solano Diversified Services’ (SDS) day training programs are located in the
cities of Vallejo and Fairfield.  SDS provides the following program services:  
Behavior Management Day Training Program (1:3), Community Based
Services (CBS) (1:3), Adult Development Center (ADC) (1:4), and 1:1/1:2
Services along with an Elderly Services Component.  The programs provide
training in the following skill areas:  Behavior, Communication/Social,
Community Integration, Employment, and Recreation/Leisure.  Functional skill
development stressing  community-based instruction is our primary agency
objective.  For example, Solano Diversified Services has implemented mobile
work crews which complete paid landscaping and janitorial jobs at various
community work sites.

Program staff are trained in behavioral methodology and techniques.  Staff
develop and implement individual Behavior Intervention Plans (BIPs)
according to the needs of each person receiving services as appropriate.  
Behavior programs emphasize the use of positive procedures and participant
success.  

A referral to the program is submitted by the Regional Center.  An intake
interview by the person follows.  Each person is assessed within thirty (30)
days of placement in the program. An Individual Instructional Plan (IIP) is
developed and a meeting with the participant, parent and/or the residential
service provider, Regional Center Service Coordinator, and program staff
follows.

The staff/participant ratio ranges from 1:1 to 1:4. More specialized training
involves higher ratios.

Our programs operate daily, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8 a.
m. to 4 p.m.  Participants attend for 6 hours of programming daily.  Our
programs are easily accessible.  The public bus stop, located in close
proximity to our program sites facilitate community integration training.
