LAAS Day Options

LAAS Day Options provides activities for people with disabilities living in the Riverland. The program promotes community integration through educational, recreational and pre-vocational learning opportunities. Activities are based on principles that acknowledge individual choices and the needs of individual clients. We pride ourselves on providing learning opportunities that are not only worthwhile but can also be applied by participants in their everyday lives.

LAAS has been providing day option services to clients since 1986 that encourage strengthening skills in education, recreation, independent living, social integration and community access.
