URS Programs

Since 1956, United Rehabilitation Services (URS) has provided a comprehensive continuum of services to meet the needs of children, adults and seniors with developmental and acquired disabilities throughout the Greater Dayton Region. URS was originally founded as the Dayton Chapter of United Cerebral Palsy and annually serves nearly 1,500 infants, children, adults and seniors with a variety of developmental and acquired disabilities including Cerebral Palsy, Down syndrome, Muscular Dystrophy, Autism, and Alzheimer's.

URS offers Early Childhood Education and School-Age Programs for children with and without special needs, ages 6 weeks to 17 years. Licensed by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, our center has 5 STARS in the Step Up To Quality Program. This voluntary “star” rating system for early care centers in Ohio ensures centers meet an extensive list of quality benchmarks including low child-to-staff ratios, small group size, staff education, ongoing specialized training, and early learning standards.

URS has the only Child Care Program in the region with on-site Nursing Services to meet the needs of even medically fragile children who require g-tube feedings, catheterizations, breathing treatments, and seizure monitoring. URS also offers on-site Therapy Services to the children in our Child Care Center, as well as 600 outpatients annually. Our team of seven highly skilled licensed therapists provide Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapies and many subspecialties including Therapeutic Listening, VitalStim Swallowing Therapy, Augmentative Communication, and the Region's only Universal Exercise Unit "spider cage" and Pediatric Aquatic Therapy Program.

Our comprehensive continuum of care extends to adults and seniors, providing daycare, vocational training programs, job-readiness for high school students and employment services to adults of all abilities. Many of adult clients have been attending the center for more than 40 years, demonstrating our commitment to supporting people in our community for a lifetime.

URS is accredited by The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), the gold standard for rehabilitation programs for maintaining internationally-recognized service standards and best practices. We have been honored with many awards including the 2012 BBB Eclipse Integrity Award and Get-Up Montgomery County Healthy Child Care Award of Excellence. URS is keenly focused on helping children and adults with disabilities to increase skills and reach their highest level of independence and has consistently maintained overhead for administrative/fundraising costs under 10% for the past eight years, ensuring that $9 out of every $10 donated goes directly to services.
