Services to Children & Adults with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities

Devoted to helping all individuals live rich and full lives, participate in their communities, and grow and thrive, Leake & Watts provides an array of services to children and adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities. We specialize in creating opportunities for adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities to fully participate in and contribute to their communities.  Our services include Residential Services, Recreation and Respite Services, Community HabilitationPre-Vocational and Supportive Employment Services, and Medicaid Service Coordination.

Persons supported by Leake & Watts include individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities, neurological impairment and autistic spectrum disorders, as well as emotional and behavioral challenges and physical disabilities. Dedicated to meeting the unique needs of each individual, our services and coordination of services are directed by each individual’s needs and desires along with those of his/her family or caregiver and circle of supports.

 

Dionn Turner, the mother of Anthony Turner, a participant in our Recreation and Respite programs for children, says, "I am very proud of my son’s growth. As a single mother with a child with Autism, I am no longer uncomfortable talking about who my child is, or even educating others about a child with a special need. And I thank all of you for helping my son."
