What happens at Orientation?

Our 60-minute orientations are led by Dougy Center staff. You will learn a little about Dougy Center while you tour our facility, visit an expression room, watch a video on Dougy Center, and have a chance to ask questions.

You will be provided a Family Questionnaire to complete and return if you are interested in our programs.
