It is Developmental Disability Awareness month and we wanted to take a moment to share another success story! Tom started in our Job Development services in May of 2021 and was quickly able to secure employment at the Landings of Huber Heights as a Dietary Aide. Tom loves his new job and have been successfully employed for over 7 months! His supervisor Chef John commented on Tom saying, “He does a great job” and is still learning new and fun duties, like using the sanitizer fogger in resident hallways.
Tom benefited from assistive technologies and modifications necessary to be successful on the job. The Landings of Huber Heights welcomed these accommodations and saw the value that Tom brought to the workplace. His story is a great example of what happens when a community employer sees the value of hiring individuals with disabilities and creating an inclusion workplace!
