Building upon the counties "person centered" initiative, we identify key areas of desire, personality, hopes and dreams etc., and develop a road map to assist the individual in getting there. This process takes time and attention to detail. It is a more specific approach to begin fine tuning and sharpening an individual’s skills according to his or her strengths, gifts and talents. How to best work through feeling anxious does not seem like it would be related to a goal, but if that development gives an individual more "tools" in their box to assist them in inclusive settings - well you get the point!
How do we highlight and define who the individual is and how to effectively pull out strengths that shine bright into the world? We aim to include ourselves in the community and to understand the worth individuals bring to their neighborhoods and city at large. Individuals will have opportunities to develop relationships of their own in their communities through integration, outreach, and volunteer efforts. The incorporation of health and fitness also provides a nice ribbon on the holistic mission, vision and values of Flight.
We offer Flight Zones that can be transformed to assist with preparation, training, etc. in identified areas of need. Flight plans are developed that are specific to the individual and offer a visual aid to assist in understating what will be worked on daily, weekly and monthly. Quarterly outcomes will be reviewed to track progress of individuals. Updates will be tracked and reported through emails and meetings with the team. Groups with peers will also be offered to provide a unified approach to deal with topics of interest chosen by the individuals and Flight team.
We are also offering career exploration to increase the success of obtaining gainful, meaningful community employment.
Well if you have everything packed and ready to go, our adventure awaits - let's take Flight!
