For some, Pleasantview's work-activity program is the beginning of their exposure to the world of work. This program enables the individual to accomplish productive, paid work under skilled supervision. Consumers are assessed as to their current abilities, strengths, work skills and work habits. An individualized plan is developed to assist the individual in meeting their own personally chosen goals.
Production work is subcontracted from businesses and industry in our own community.
Pleasantview offers training and employment for individuals wishing to obtain competitive employment in the community. Our professional staff assist the consumer in identifying their career choice and provides the support to ensure that their goal is met. Our program provides work-site support to work with an individual as long as is needed to ensure that their placement is successful. Our program continues to monitor the consumer's progress at the workplace on a long term basis and is available to the consumer or the employer for any needs that arise.
Other Support Services
A Case Manager, who gives individual assistance in the development of the goal plan and on-going monitoring of progress, provides support to consumers. Additional training and instruction in workplace skills, independent living and communication is available to participants. Support services involves areas of need that cannot be addressed in a work setting. Independent living skills training is provided and includes topics such as money management, social skills training, and use of public transportation. Each program participant has an individual program plan developed with ongoing assessment and monitoring of progress. Other services include counseling and speech therapy.
Potential program participants are generally referred to the program from Regional Center (affiliated with the State Dept. of Developmental Services). Other referrals may be made by the Dept. of Rehabilitation or private individuals. Program participants must be 16 years of age or older, have a developmental disability, lack adequate work skills, and be able to care for their basic personal needs unassisted. Acceptance into the program is determined by interview, pre-admission screening of referral information, and evaluation of the individual's potential to benefit from the program.
