I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. I believe in sharing my talents and experiences by giving back to the community by giving my time to coaching, church and especially to the disability community. I truly believe that all men and women are created equally.
It's that time of year. The Cudahy Lions Club is presenting the Annual Sweet Applewood Days in Cudahy Park this weekend, August 1,2,3.
We have started the transition process (something that is not offered by many of the voucher schools or guaranteed under the special needs voucher) for assisting my son Tyler with achieving his employment goal of community based, competitive wage employment. We met with the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) late in the school year and in the last week; we have met with a supported employment agency that will assist the school with creating some job experiences. What impressed my wife when we were scheduling the meeting is that DVR insisted that Tyler be a part of the process, not his parents making the decision for him. Since this is a plan for the individual, it is vitaly important that they are present and part of the process.
