employment is possible
Working gives everyone a purpose beyond themselves.
preference and choice
Until a person is able to try and experience multiple options, they are unable to form a preference. This process in integral to every part of our programming. However, it is absolutely essential in providing stable and long lasting employment. It is not only about matching a person to a current economical need, but also ensuring that the person’s gifts complement this position and company.
Morning Star strives that everyone we work with will be the leader of their own services.This is seen in a tangible way when our individuals start to lead their own planning meetings and articulating their hopes and dreams. We accomplish this through a series of steps bit by bit giving the individual successful control of the decisions in their life.
teaching skills needed for our local economy
When planning for generalization from the inception of programing, we at all times, keep in mind employment opportunities for the individual we are serving. We deliberately and objectively shape behaviors that will be marketable in the local workplace.
supporting positive behavior in the workplace
It is important to look for jobs in the community that will complement the ecobehavioral design and will set the person up for success. However, it is equally important that we help the person cope with unwanted and un- predictable stimuli that will be present in the community.
nothing is impossible
When talking to people about the dynamic of behavior and employment it is crucial to understand that the only person limiting the individual from success is the expectations that we have of them. We must think outside the box to facilitate the gifts that the individual has to offer our community.
