Work Activity Program Services

Work Activity Program (WAP) services through the regional centers include paid work, work adjustment and supportive habilitation services typically in a sheltered work shop setting. WAPs provide paid work in accordance with Federal and State Fair Labor Standards. Work adjustment services may include developing good work safety practices, money management skills, and appropriate work habits. Supportive habilitation services may include social skill and community resource training as long as the services are necessary to achieve vocational objectives.

If you are interested in applying for WAP services you should ask your regional center for help.
