Mental Hygiene Specialist/Behavioral Unit Syracuse Developmental Center Syracuse, N.Y.
Assisted with daily living sills for children, adults and seniors with various emotional, developmental and physical challenges.
The Syracuse State School building was torn down and replaced by a residential facility called the Syracuse Developmental Center (SDC). With the growing emphasis on community living rather than institutionalization for developmentally disabled persons, no new individuals were placed at SDC and there has been a gradual movement of residents into the community.
