Overview

Quest, Inc., makes a difference in the lives of nearly 1,000 people each day. For over 50 years, Quest has supported Central Floridians with developmental and intellectual disabilities by offering choices and opportunities to live, learn, work and play. Quest offers a wide range of services and support for individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities.  Our company can be a valuable resource by providing a safe place to call home, quality long term care, education, therapy and early intervention services for children, employment for youth and adults and a place for retreat and respite. Quest’s mission, through quality and innovation, is to build communities where people with disabilities achieve their goals. Each Quest team member plays an important role in providing the individuals we serve with superior service, care and support.

Responsibilities

Recognizing the increased need for quality early intervention and therapy services, Quest opened the Quest Kids program in 1996. Quest Kids specializes in helping children with disabilities ranging from 15 months old to 18 years of age. About half of the children in the program are on the autism spectrum, while the remaining 50 percent have developmental delays, learning differences, Down syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, chromosomal abnormalities and other learning and behavior concerns.

 

Working hand-in-hand with speech pathologists, occupational therapists and educational professionals, Quest Kids develops and implements an appropriate path of learning that meets each child's specific needs. At Quest Kids, children are taught how to learn using Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and are given tools to communicate.

 

Children receive intensive instruction in language, self-care, social skills, academics and decision making. Through early intervention, children have a higher chance of succeeding in mainstream education, obtaining a career and fully participating in their families and communities.
