RIO started out as a single program organization, providing therapy services in a small farmhouse on 6 acres of avocado fields in Orange. Throughout the decades, RIO’s campus in Orange has expanded to over 75,000 square feet, which includes an indoor therapeutic pool and multiple adult and pediatric therapy gyms. RIO also opened two additional campuses (one in Fullerton, the other in San Clemente), and two apartment buildings for adults with disabilities. RIO has 220 employees, 35 volunteers and interns, and a dedicated, voluntary Board of Directors.

Serving all of Orange County, RIO helps over a thousand children, adults, and seniors with disabilities every day, and provides multiple health, wellness, and educational services. Today, RIO’s many programs include:

  • Infant Day Care

Programs


Child Development Program

RIO's Child Development Program provides center based early intervention services in a group setting for children ages 18 months - 36 months who are at risk or show evidence of developmental delays. Children who are born prematurely, prenatally exposed to drugs, or with specific conditions, diagnoses or special needs may qualify for services. A multi-disciplinary team of professionals is assigned to work with the child and family. Prior to the child’s entry into the Child Development Program, an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) is already developed with specific goals and objectives identified by the referring or funding source in the following areas:

  • Gross and Fine Motor Skills
  • Speech, Language and Cognition
  • Sensory Organization
  • Parent/Family Development
  • Self-Help/Social Skills
  • Social/Emotional Skills 

 

Additional goals and objectives may be added as identified within the group program.

Budget  $620,000.00
Category  Health Care, General/Other Early Intervention & Prevention
Population Served Infants to Preschool (under age 5)
Program Short-Term Success  From the start of the program until they graduate at age 3, the children show incredible improvements in growth, motor and physical skills. A child may enter the program unable to move around or speak. As a result of constant physical, occupational, and speech therapy services, they'll gradually move around more, speak, interact with their peers, and participate in activities.
Program Long-Term Success  In the long term, children who complete our Child Development Program show dramatic improvements developmentally, especially with speech, which takes a while to develop. At the beginning of the program, they may say a word every so often, but over time, and as a result of various exercises including reading books and singing songs, they'll start forming sentences. Children will become more interactive with their peers as a result of group activities and class participation, and communicate better with others.
Program Success Monitored By  Regular evaluations by the therapists and teachers. Therapists and teachers know which stages of development a child should be at, at various ages. A child's success can then be determined by comparing their developmental status with a child the same age without special needs.
Examples of Program Success 
   One of our Child Development Program children was born premature. As a result of multiple medical problems, he was hospitalized for the first several months of his life. He entered RIO's Child Development Program with several global delays, including physical impairments.
   This child was in the global group therapy program at RIO until he turned three years old. A team of therapists and teachers worked with him and his family to strengthen his communication and motor skills. By the time he graduated from the program, he was able to sit independently in a chair, started to walk, and participated in the group therapy activities with no support. He could verbalize sounds, follow simple commands, take turns during therapy, and play with toys. He showed pride in his accomplishments by constantly smiling and clapping for himself after successfully completing tasks. 

Community-Based Adult Services

   RIO's Community-Based Adult Services (CBAS) center is a day program providing a variety of health, therapeutic, and social services designed to serve the specialized needs of neurologically and physically challenged adults.
   The primary objectives of the program are to restore or maintain optimal capacity for self-care, and to delay or prevent premature institutionalization.
   The program stresses partnership with the participant, the family, the physician, and the community in working towards maintaining one's optimal capacity.
Budget  $5,300,000.00
Category  Health Care, General/Other Rehabilitation Services
Population Served Elderly and/or Disabled Adults
Program Short-Term Success  In the short-term, CBAS clients improve their abilities as a result of the various center-based, therapeutic exercises and activities. These include improved physical health, functional mobility, independent living tasks, improvement in their speaking abilities, and increased socialization and self empowerment.
Program Long-Term Success  The long-term success of our CBAS program, is keeping medically fragile clients from needing institutionalization.
Program Success Monitored By  Clients are reassessed every 3 months to see how much they've improved since their original evaluation.
Examples of Program Success 

When Tracy had a stroke at the age of 46, he was devastated. Up until that point he had lived a very independent lifestyle, but in November of 2014 that changed when Tracy suffered from an intracranial hemorrhage. He was left with significant deficits to his memory skills and communication abilities, as well as with right side weakness, known as hemiplegia. By April of 2015, Tracy was out of acute care and ready to attend the Rehabilitation Institute of Southern California (RIO).

Upon admission, Tracy was overwhelmed and had many hurdles to overcome. Tracy was unable to walk, could only speak one to two words at a time, and frequently became tearful. This led him to withdraw from social interactions and he was at risk of becoming isolated.

Three years later, Tracy is hardly recognizable! Thanks to his hard work in his Speech Therapy and various support groups, he is now understood in conversation and is known for being very warm and friendly. Through Occupational Therapy, Tracy is learning compensatory strategies to increase his functional daily living tasks. A source of great pride for Tracy, is the progress that he has been making on walking with the assistance of his Physical Therapist at RIO. And, most recently, he has reached his goal of qualifying to participate in Aquatic Therapy at RIO. With the support of his family, peers, and staff at RIO, Tracy has been able to find the motivation to continually push himself to improve every day.

 
   

Vocational Services

TAP specializes in serving adults with intellectual disabilities, teaching skills that can be adapted into the community and at home. Staff to participant program ratio is 1:4.
  • Transitional Adult Activity Center (TAAC): is also a creative day program similar to TAP, however the participants in TAAC are more self-independent and don't require as much supervision. Participants learn a variety of skills, including preparation for employment. Staff to participant program ratio is 1:8.
  • Competitive Integration Training Program - Employment First: employment program offered at RIO's Orange campus to adults with intellectual disabilities that assists with obtaining and maintaining competitive, integrated community employment with 1:1 job intervention/training services.

He is well like by his peers, as well as staff. Eliseo has a wonderful sense of humor and makes everyone laugh daily. He likes to go to church and enjoys singing. Eliseo says his favorite thing to do in TAP is sing karaoke, performing his favorite song "La Bamba." Eliseo initiates conversation and concentrates on the daily projects and activities. He is encouraging during games and works great in a team setting. While asking Eliseo what he likes about the TAP program, he stated "I love coming to TAP Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. I wish I could come on Saturday!"

    RIO's Independent Living Skills (ILS) program provides opportunities for disabled and elderly adults to attain the best quality of life in their environment of choice. ILS services offer individuals the opportunity to learn or re-learn skills needed for daily living and maintenance of an independent lifestyle.
   ILS training occurs in the individual's home and communities. One-to-one instruction with a team of professionals assist the individual in accomplishing specific goals and objectives. Striving for independence in the community involves becoming an active participant in activities of daily living. ILS assists individuals in pursuing skills in the areas of vocation, education, volunteerism, social pursuits, and apartment living. 
   Structured recreation activities are offered on Saturdays to assist people in becoming familiar with activities in the community as well as meeting new people. 
   Family support groups are offered on a quarterly basis to assist families and significant others in adjusting to and maintaining the individual's independent lifestyle. 
Budget  $380,000.00
Category  Health Care, General/Other Independent Living Skills Instruction
Population Served Adults Elderly and/or Disabled

Program Long-Term Success  In the long-term, RIO's Independent Living Skills program will have helped clients re-learn daily skills such as cooking, taking medications, shopping, doing laundry, and maintaining finances. Clients will be able to live independently with minimal support, despite their disability, and be able to advocate for themselves.
Program Success Monitored By  Weekly documentation and quarterly meetings with the client's circle of support to track, evaluate, and discuss improvements and goals.
Examples of Program Success 
   Larry, a deaf man and client in RIO’s Independent Living Skills (ILS) program, was referred to RIO by the Regional Center of Orange County in January, 2014. Shortly after joining the program, his stable living situation with a significant other changed, and he was left without a place to live. He eventually became homeless for a couple of weeks, a situation that’s especially scary and difficult for someone who’s deaf.
   ILS staff regularly transported him to homeless shelters with the hopes of getting in, and to food banks on a weekly basis. The homeless shelters in Orange County are very overpopulated, and Larry would be asked to wait in line for a lottery style ticket. If his number was called, he had a place to stay for 2 weeks! Unfortunately, he was turned away the first four times he tried to get in. He began to lose hope and was devastated, but ILS staff encouraged him to keep trying. One night, his number was called, and he got to stay at the shelter for 2 weeks! During this time, he was given many resources to help him find other temporary housing. With the SSI money he received, ILS staff helped him develop a budget and research various motel housing options within a price range he could afford. ILS also helped him research and fill out the application for various Section 8 housing openings.
   Despite the obstacles along the way, and with the assistance of ILS staff, Larry now lives in an apartment with furniture he received for free from various resources, and is attending college!

Category  Health Care, General/Other Rehabilitation Services
Population Served Elderly and/or Disabled Adults Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Program Short-Term Success  The short-term success of Physical, Aquatic Physical, and Occupational therapies include the ability to use muscles more, decrease in pain level, and increase functional mobility.

Program Long-Term Success  In the long-term, clients resume their everyday activities.
Program Success Monitored By  Observing weekly changes and improvement, and comparing the original evaluation with the discharge report.
Examples of Program Success 
   In 2012, Teresa's life changed. She and her family were driving home when they were involved in a terrible car accident. Everyone was okay...except Teresa. She spent three months in the hospital, two of those three in a coma. When she came through, she was transferred to a nursing home, and then to St. Jude for Physical Therapy treatment. Shortly after, St. Jude referred Teresa to RIO, after the insurance stopped covering treatment.
   Suffering from severe muscle spasm and Quadriplegia, Teresa came to RIO unable to walk or stand. However, after six months at RIO and as a result of weekly 45-60 minute Physical Therapy sessions, she was able to walk with a platform walker! Her loving husband, who didn't miss a single session, said they're "very happy with RIO, and will always come back here."
