Sherwood’s Adult Services provide year-round Day Habilitation, Pre-Vocational and Vocational Training through the Missouri Medicaid Home and Community Based Waiver Services (HCBS Waiver) serving adults with autism and other developmental disabilities.

The Day Habilitation operates Monday-Friday from 8:30am-2:30pm. Services are provided both on and off-site in a small staff to individual ratio (1:1 to 1:4). Each individual served has an Individual Support Plan (ISP) that determines the services that are to be provided as well as individual goals to guide their programming. Services are offered that enable our individuals to develop independence and maximize their relationships in the community.

Programming emphasis may include:

  • Activities of Daily Living
  • Community Inclusion
  • Music & Creative Expression
  • Music Therapy
  • Physical Health and Fitness
  • Recreational Activities
  • Socialization
  • Volunteerism
  • Employment and Community Options (ECO)

Community Inclusion & Volunteerism

Regardless of a disability, everyone has the right to be respected and appreciated as a member of their community. Sherwood Center affords individuals the opportunity to take weekly trips to restaurants, movies, parks, museums, nature centers and stores. In addition, volunteer opportunities are made available at Harvesters, the Sherwood Center Special Education Program and local thrift stores to focus on pre-vocational skills and giving back to the community. Staff accompanies program individuals into the community and assists in the acquisition of new skills and helps generalize mastered skills to different environments.


Throughout the year, Sherwood Center hosts socials that integrate our individuals with another Day Habilitation program. The socials are held at Sherwood and typically incorporate a DJ, an array of food, social activities, and a ton of fun!
