  • Vision skills
  • Mobility training (skills to travel independently in a community and at a work)
  • Communication skills
  • Adaptive daily living skills

PREP works with in conjunction with other CSC services to best achieve the goals of each individualized service plan. Contact Susanna Meles at 216-791-8118 ext. 8747 or for more information.
