Community Services:
Ability Awareness Workshops:
Designed to increase awareness of everyday differences between all people and to increase sensitivity to the challenges of people with disabilities, participants learn to focus on people's abilities, not limitations, through interactions with hands-on activities. Participants learn to see the person instead of the disability. Adaptive equipment (wheelchairs, communication devices, switches and environmental controls) is used to heighten awareness of how people with disabilities utilize the equipment to function in everyday activities. Workshop activities are applicable to various age groups.

Professional & Family Training:
The Capper Professional and Family Training program is designed to enhance clinical decision-making skills, therapy, and educational techniques for direct service providers, personal attendants and parents with the ultimate outcome of enhancing the independence of people they work and live with who have disabilities.
The Capper Professional and Family Training program provides both continuing education workshops and customized training services.
