Residents and Day Program attendees must be out of high school and be in good physical condition. They must have a diagnosed mild or moderate intellectual or developmental disabilities, be ambulatory, and be able to perform basic hygiene functions as well as Activities of Daily Living. Once admitted, the individual may continue in BVT programs, so long as they are able to benefit from BVT services.
Those who are considering living at Breckenridge Village of Tyler (BVT) or attending the day program are welcome to come for a pre-placement visit. These visits generally last 2 to 7 days and allow the interested individual and family to experience life at BVT first-hand. A pre-placement visit is only offered based on availability of residential or day program openings.
Pre-placement visits provide an opportunity for the individual and family to familiarize themselves with BVT services and allow BVT staff to decide if the prospective resident is suitable for placement, as well as for the individual and their family to determine if BVT meets the individual’s wants and needs. After the conclusion of the pre-placement visit, the Admissions Committee will discuss the individual’s visit and make a decision regarding admission. The family will be contacted when the decision has been made.
