10:32 am - Developmental Centers
For most that know me, they know that I find Developmental Centers for the Developmentally Disabled deplorable. Nothing but overglorified mental hospitals or prisons.

This article supports my belief.

I like the idea of training centers for people to attend in the day time and job coordinators to help them find employment. I've never been too keen on residental living situations simply because of lack of accountability

That's what I do for a living. I work at a Work Program for adults with disabilities and find them jobs.

I used to be a case manager for adults with MR. OR that's what my job title was anyway. I basically made sure they were happy, got what they needed, etc etc. My degree is in social work.
