Corliss provides its participants home-based services and support in both a Residential Program as well as educational activities for daily living skills in the Day Program.

Medical supervision and support, provided as needed, are the features and the provision of alternate communication modes for the Deaf or Deaf and Developmentally Disabled individuals make Corliss unique.
