Solutions for everyone

Family Support Services

IAHD provides a multitude of supports and services to assist individuals and their families with accessing the full range of resources available to them. Medicaid Service Coordination, parent training, respite and entitlement assistance are just a few of the services we offer to individuals and their families. Every activity upholds IAHD’s commitment to assisting families.


Residential Services

Home should be a special place that offers comfort and provides a sense of belonging. IAHD’s homes are located in urban and suburban settings in both Bronx and Westchester Counties. Individuals are encouraged to become active members of their community by participating in all of the events their neighborhoods have to offer. Our homes and apartments are available to fit different needs and lifestyles.


Day Services and Individualized Supports

Our Day Services and Individualized Supports program assists individuals with helping to achieve personal dreams by offering creative activities specifically tailored to one’s interests. IAHD also provides therapeutic skills development to maximize opportunities for learning, self-actualization and socialization. A broad menu of options allows people to explore, discover and choose what works for them.

Communication is Nothing But Fun……….……

The Speech and Language Pathologists presented Fall Communication Fun Day at all of IAHD’s Day Programs. The focus of this Communication initiative was on building vocabulary relating to Fall events, and activities were planned to teach relevant vocabulary and encourage everyone’s participation. Thanks to the efforts of the agency’s Speech Pathologists, Genevieve Jenkins, Sohodra Singh and Carolyn East, everyone had the opportunity to enhance their communication skills during the Communication Fun Days. Read below to learn more about the activities that were provided.


Bronx Residential Retreat Marks 10th Year Anniversary

Ten years ago, the Residential Committee of the Bronx DD Council formed a Retreat Committee with the idea of providing an annual learning and networking opportunity for staff working in residences and supporting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This year’s program, set against the beautiful backdrop of the Throgs Neck and Whitestone Bridges, was a shining example of excellence, achieved by dedicated committee members who believed in the value of this forum. More than 250 people, representing 16 agencies enjoyed the opportunity to learn from experienced and dynamic presenters and exchange ideas that they could bring back to their work locations to inform and revitalize the lives of everyone they touch. The theme of this year’s retreat – “Good to Great, Being Leaders” – typified the positive, can-do attitude of the event planners and its attendees.
