Centre-based Programs

Able provides daily programs throughout the week that are focused around centre-based, group activities that encourage individual participation and choice and have a key focus on person-centred support.

Our flexible, highly skilled staff ensure your needs of social interaction, safety, personal care and overall enjoyment are fully met. We promote independence and seek to support you in developing a variety of social and life skills.

We will support you to improve skills such as road safety, using public transport, positive communication, money and food handling and using technology.

Young Adult Program

Our Young Adult Program (YAP) is a Day Program in Launceston, Tasmania for clients aged between 18-30. Similarly, we have another day program in Launceston called the Lifestyle Choices (Birribi) Centre. These programs are designed to provide young adults with disability the opportunity to learn life skills, build and develop positive relationships and friendships whilst becoming more independent. 

The program is both centre and community based with a variety of activities on offer. Some activities our clients have engaged in include:

  • Learn to maintain and ride a tricycle bike through an awareness program
  • Learn to care for and ride a horse through Equine program
  • Ten pin bowling
