One of the primary goals of DTAC is to help address the transition process of young adults graduating from the high school environment. Making friends and finding a purpose with dignity and respect contribute to each person’s goals of greater independence. All of our programs have at least one bilingual instructor and are geared to assist in this transition and can be joined by the client at any level based on their needs and development. DTAC also offers a class for English as a second language.
DTAC programs operate Monday-Friday, excluding holidays. Referrals are usually made through the North Los Angeles County Regional Center.
Tours and day visits available on request.
