Pressley Ridge’s residential campuses are a safe haven for children who need a highly structured and safe living environment. Our residential direct support professionals support the youth in our care and provide opportunities to experience social, community, recreational, and educational activities in a home-like, residential setting. In the Autism Community Integration Program, direct support professionals provide support to young adults at community activities to increase social skills and recreational skills.
Our staff are highly trained in group development, problem solving, de-escalation, therapeutic interventions and how to manage time effectively. These skills are foundational to any professional career and develop leadership capacity.
