Tailored Services

Tailored Services are designed to meet the unique needs of adults (ages 18+) with developmental disabilities. Services are approved for 6 to 40 hours per week based on individual goals. Autonomy is the ultimate goal of Tailored Services, where supports are provided and then actively faded as determined by each person and their team. Our Tailored Services program is directed by Morgan Tingey-Dias, available at morgan@ignitefutures.org.


All services are community-based and focus on one or more of the following areas, based on individual goals:


  • Higher and/or continuing education

    • Support at the university, community college, and/or trade school level:

      • ​Registering for courses
