The Barry L. Price Rehabilitation Center

The mission of the Barry L. Price Center is to support people with developmental disabilities by encouraging personal growth and participation in the community through social, living, and work experiences that respect individual preference and diversity.
With programs previously located in different physical locations, it was difficult for The Price Center to forge a cohesive community of support for program participants and their family members. The Price Center has recently purchased a building in Newton that allows all these programs to come together under the same roof.
In addition to family support programs and residential care, The Price Center offers day habilitation, which provides attentive and expert clinical care and developmental skills training, as well as intensive day habilitation which offers an array of therapeutic services for adults with significant disabilities. The ASCENT program helps young people with developmental disabilities with Advocacy, Social Skills, Career Exploration, Networking and Transitions.
Original art hangs throughout hallways and dining rooms of the new facility providing another way for participants at The Price Center to connect with the greater Boston community and offering inspiration for creative art expression activity that plays a part in many of the rehabilitation programs. Having original art in the program spaces also sparks participant’s creativity, reflection, and self-expression, aspects of personal growth which The Barry Price Center strives to foster.
