Goals

Community Involvement

Stephanie's mother, Sue, was referred to us by a friend at Special Olympics. As Stephanie was preparing to transition from school, Sue began looking at new opportunities for Stephanie.

Stephanie participated in a Mapping session where she shared her passion for reading and her desire to work in the community. Through Community Participation, we helped Stephanie build a relationship with SLD Reads, an organization that offers literacy services. Stephanie volunteers there every week and is happy that she's helping to spread the love of reading to others.

She is an avid reader and she is active in Special Olympics. She also volunteers every week at the Nature Center. The staff there appreciate how reliable and detail-oriented Stephanie is in her work, and they are grateful that she chooses to volunteer with them.
