Bittersweet Inc. is a care and treatment facility for adolescents and adults with autism. We have five main directorates at Bittersweet: Residential; Vocational; Supported Living and Respite; Advocacy and Supported Employment. Our residential program serves 20 persons in three Medicaid Licensed homes on our main campus. The habilitation program at these facilities happens in the morning and in the evening after completing their work. The residential schedules are full of exercise, academic programs and community outings. Habilitation goals of daily
living and skills of adaptive living such as laundry, personal hygiene, meal preparation, and structured social interaction play a large part in the success of our residential program. Our facility has five supported living homes. The participants come to our main campus for day programming and then go back to homes in the community that they share with other participants. Habilitation and skills development continue through all residential programs just as though they were living in our main campus housing. Bittersweet advocates and helps schools through consulting and planning, working with the local courts to advocate on the rights of individuals with autism. We also consult to groups or families to give them assistance on how to best serve persons with autism. We conduct tours to professionals and students to expose them to our model and perhaps to their first experience to someone with autism. Bittersweet offers Respite Services to families
