Working with individuals with
disabilities, you know, intellectual and development disabilities, in many ways is
really not a lot different than working with anybody. You know, there’s
successes, there’s failures, but working with them over the past, close to two
years, the successes make me feel like, wow. Right now I’m working with several
folks who are in the process of trying to find jobs; sending out applications;
potentially tweaking resumes; coaching. And sometimes it’s just being a sounding
board to how to deal with situations at work with the close to 30 people that I
support here out in the job force. Seeing them grow, seeing them be an
active part of employment, you know contributing to their own well-being.
It’s just very very rewarding just to see the growth.
