Specialized Programs

For adults with autism, acquired brain injuries and other complex needs, Arizona MENTOR offers Specialized Programs in small group settings, in which the parents and other family members of the individuals we serve play an active role in planning their loved one’s service. Family members participate in monthly group meetings to discuss structured activities and create activity calendars based on their loved ones’ interests and goals.
