REACHING OUT ... TRANSFORMING LIVES

REACHING OUT... TO OUR COMMUNITY

A LETTER FROM US TO YOU

The words “community” and “connect” have been featured in our annual reports over the past few years, and with good reason. Since 2009, ODC has been transforming from a “place” where people with disabilities come to receive services to a “resource” that provides individuals with the opportunities and support they need to connect to their community in both work and life. This year, you’ll see the words “reaching out” on almost every page. 2017 was another year of growth and transformation for ODC… we’ve established new services, served new populations, created new partnerships and expanded into new communities. We’re reaching out more than ever before, helping the individuals we serve become engaged in their community, and helping our community members become engaged with ODC.

PAM ROSS

ODC continues to be innovative in creating opportunities for those we serve. In this report, you’ll read about our new school-to-work Transition Services, which help students with disabilities who are as young as age 14 begin preparing for work and life after high school. Our CommunityConnect services teach skills, and increase independence and confidence, and CareerConnect helps individuals achieve and maintain employment

in the community. We have enhanced our Day Services using a “therapeutic recreation” approach, to help individuals achieve their highest level of independence. Our Project SEARCH programs in Wisconsin Rapids and Marshfield continue to transform young lives… and we’re ramping up to begin the next school year with a new Project SEARCH in Wausau. “Community” is at the core of all we do. The success of our services and our participants is entirely dependent on the partnerships we’ve built with community members, businesses and organizations. We thank you for your support as an employer, customer, volunteer or donor. May we continue to work together to create communities that are enriched by the abilities and contributions of all members.

FRONT COVER: Sara Schueller, ODC Transition Services Developer, helps John get set up for one of his Prevocational Accelerated Career Enhancement (PACE) classroom sessions. PACE utilizes an online assessment tool created by the Conover Company that was designed to help individuals with disabilities transition to community employment. The assessment includes: an Interest Indicator, which explores career interests; a Learning Assessment Program, which demonstrates how math, communication and problem-solving skills relate to the actual demands of a career; A Career Planner, which explores the job market and job opportunities within a person’s field of interest; and Work Samples, which provide opportunities for hands-on learning.

ODC transition services implemented ODC developing transition services

ODC staff instruct students in the importance of “soft skills” utilizing Skills to Pay the Bills, a DVR-supported training program. In 2017, summer and school-year classes were held at schools in Adams-Friendship, Marshfield and Wisconsin Rapids. In preparing for work after high school, students like Katie, at The Laundromutt, and Andrew, at Dunkin Donuts, participate in temporary work experiences supported by ODC staff and DVR.

REACHING OUT... TO NEW POPULATIONS

ODC SCHOOL-TO-WORK TRANSITION SERVICES Change can be challenging, yet more often than not it leads ODC to unique opportunities for growth and innovation.

community employment for many years,” said Sara. “Now, we’re using our expertise to serve a younger population.”

So when new federal laws created a shift in the types of services that schools and the Department of Workforce Development – Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) were required to offer for students with disabilities prior to graduation - as early as age 14 - ODC’s Transition Services program was born.

With DVR support, ODC staff bring a curriculum called Skills to Pay the Bills directly to the students’ classrooms. The curriculum focuses on “soft skills” including communication, enthusiasm and attitude, teamwork, networking, problem-solving and professionalism. ODC staff follow up these classroom sessions with DVR-supported internships and temporary work experiences for the students at local businesses.

“These changes put a real focus on making sure that students are prepared for community employment right after graduation,” said Sara Schueller, ODC Transition Services Developer, who has been heading up the program since its inception in early 2017. “ODC wanted to be a leader in providing the services needed for students to successfully transition from school to work.” So Sara began reaching out to 32 schools in seven counties, including Adams, Clark, Lincoln, Marathon, Portage, Taylor and Wood. Recognizing that districts are now required to provide transition services to their students, but that many are short-staffed or have schedules jam-packed with day-to-day lessons, Sara offered ODC’s assistance. “ODC has been providing services that help individuals succeed in

“When we begin working with students at a younger age,” said Sara, “they will hopefully have had a variety of work experiences by the time they graduate. Our goal is that on graduation day, the student will already have a permanent job in place, and ODC will continue to support them into adult services.” “I love the partnerships,” she said. “Working with school districts, teachers, DVR, students, parents... it’s such a team effort! That’s really exciting!”

REACHING OUT... AND CONTINUING TO CONNECT

ODC COMMUNITYCONNECT™ SERVICES NICOLE It was just one year ago that Nicole decided to join one of ODC’s CommunityConnect groups. She was a quiet, very shy individual, so this step was a big one. “Nicole started as a volunteer with the Boys & Girls Club program,” said Laura Krause, ODC Community Connector. “The first time she visited the volunteer site at Mead School, she literally sat on a chair and clutched her purse for two hours, she was so petrified.” That was then. Now, Laura has to search for Nicole when she visits the program location. “She is in one classroom or another,” said Laura, “independently leading activities with the kids.”

AS HER CONFIDENCE GREW, NICOLE BECAME REALLY EXCITED ABOUT FINDING COMMUNITY EMPLOYMENT.

As her confidence grew, Nicole became really excited about finding community employment. Danielle Nystrom, ODC Employment Coordinator, set Nicole up with a DVR-supported temporary on-the-job assessment at Hotel Mead in Wisconsin Rapids. While working in their kitchen, Nicole found her calling. “She is now passionate about working in a kitchen,” said Danielle. “She is such a self-advocate, working with me to identify job openings that are right for her.” “She’s really excited to work,” said Danielle, “and we’re really excited to help her get there!”

BRANDON Always smiling! Those are words used to describe Brandon by almost everyone who knows him, including his coworkers at Anytime Fitness. Brandon is also a perfect example of how combining all of ODC’s service options can lead to success in community employment. Brandon joined an ODC CommunityConnect group in 2016, after having participated in center-based prevocational services and Day Services. He wanted to volunteer, and began by helping to keep the floors and windows at Christ Lutheran Church in Marshfield clean and shining. He then began volunteering at Hope Lodge, where his duties included cleaning and sanitizing their exercise area and equipment. What came next? All of that cleaning experience helped Brandon to secure a permanent position at Anytime Fitness in 2017! His volunteer duties at Hope Lodge made him a great fit for the position. ODC and DVR worked together to support Brandon through his job search and training. Although Brandon really excelled at keeping the facility clean, ODC staff continued to support him for an extended period of time to help him work on his communication skills.

WHAT IS COMMUNITYCONNECT? CommunityConnect is a service that enhances the lives of individuals “outside of work”, and helps them take steps toward community employment. All CommunityConnect activities happen in the community within small groups supported by ODC staff. Groups explore places and activities in the community, visit businesses and learn about jobs, volunteer to practice skills and give back to the community, and get connected to things that interest them as individuals. This service is supported in part by Inclusa, Inc., and has ultimately resulted in many individuals getting their first community job; it has also helped individuals gain confidence while in the community and develop lasting connections to people, places and activities of interest to them.

REACHING OUT... TO ACHIEVE EMPLOYMENT SUCCESS

ODC CAREERCONNECT SERVICES MATTHEW In the words of Diane Weiler, Human Resources Officer, Pioneer Bank: “I have a unique perspective to share... as an employer of a person with a disability, and as the mother of a child with autism. We hired Matthew at Pioneer Bank over a year ago. As an employer, I am so proud of the growth I’ve seen – in our staff and their acceptance of Matthew, and in Matthew’s development as a young member of the workforce. It’s been amazing to see him mature in his understanding of the intricacies of the world of work that were so foreign to him just a short time ago. With the help of two amazing ODC training specialists, Matthew quickly learned his new role. Our staff enjoy having him in the office, and we see that he brings such a positive energy to his work. When I asked our president and CEO, Jeff Whitrock, what he gained by having Matthew on our staff, he responded, ‘Matthew helps me pay attention to the details, and I’ve learned how to slow down and explain myself... two very important lessons.’

“I love my job at Pioneer Bank,” said Matthew. “I like that I am able to work around people that respect me and accept me for who I am, even with my disability. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to work in a place that uses my strengths and makes me feel successful.”

Matthew has taught all of our employees to be more grateful, and to not take the little things for granted. When he was given a Pioneer Bank shirt to wear, he was so excited... he is truly, truly proud to be working here. As a mother, I am so excited that there is an organization like ODC that is committed to helping people with disabilities find jobs. As a parent, one of your many prayers is that someday, your child will have a job and be successful. We are blessed to have this organization working so hard to make sure everyone has the opportunity to work, and to achieve their personal goals.”

In the words of Steve & Mary, Matthew's Parents: “As parents, we all want our children to succeed. We want them to find work that is meaningful and a workplace that is accepting of them and helps them grow. We want them to feel a sense of worth and to be proud of the work that they do. Matthew is a young man who wants to fit in and wants to be like everyone else, and he works hard to do both despite the limitations created by his autism. Matthew has found a workplace that values his strengths and accepts him for who he is. ODC has worked with Pioneer Bank to create a workplace in which Matthew can be successful. Their employment coordinator helped to create this opportunity, and for that we are extremely grateful. Their training specialists are helping him learn workplace etiquette and job-related skills, and work through social situations that most of us take for granted. He has learned the meaning of responsibility and accountability, and the importance of following directions. In Matthew’s words, working at Pioneer Bank has enabled him to feel every day that even though he has a disability, ‘they accept me for me’.”

MATTHEW HAS FOUND A WORKPLACE THAT VALUES HIS STRENGTHS AND ACCEPTS HIM FOR WHO HE IS.

STEPHANIE Art Dahms is a firefighter / paramedic with the Stevens Point Fire Department. Art has a son, Cody, who works with ODC. So when Art’s department was approached by ODC staff about the potential to employ a person with a disability, he knew it was the right thing to do, for so many reasons. “Cody has been working in the community for a few years now,” said Art. “If he can’t go to work, he is one grumpy dude! He’s the only guy I know who hates Fridays, because he knows the weekend is coming and he won’t be going to work.” Art understands the importance of work in enriching Cody’s life. So he was eager to see if he could be of help to Stephanie, who was passionate about working at a fire station. Stephanie has family members who are firefighters, and she dreamed of making a career for herself in that environment. He and members of his department spent time visiting the Wisconsin Rapids Fire Department, which employs a person with a disability through ODC to do their janitorial work. Things were working out so well for them that Art and his colleagues took the necessary steps to get Stephanie hired.

“This is exactly the job I wanted,” said Stephanie. “I have a family member who is a firefighter, and he helps others. I want to help others, too.”

Individuals in Supported Community Employment ODC's supported employment staff provide on-thejob support for individuals in community employment. They assist with training the employee for the job, and provide job coaching services for as long as needed to ensure success for both the employee and employer.

“Art started the ball rolling,” said Joe Gemza, one of the department’s Assistant Chiefs. “He said, ‘Why aren’t we doing something like this - something that will make Stephanie’s life so much happier, and will free up our guys to do other things? It’s a win-win.’” “We told her from the get-go that she was part of the team,” said Joe. “She fits right in… and it all works because we all work together.”

ODC DAY SERVICES

“I recently introduced the parents of a person with a disability to ODC’s Day Services. We talked about Therapeutic Recreation, a philosophy that has enhanced ODC’s services in both our centers and the community. Therapeutic Recreation is a tool to improve health, functional abilities, independence and quality of life for people with disabilities. We provide experiences in our center to help them develop their strengths and improve areas that need strengthening. We use community opportunities to help them practice the skills they’ve learned, learn something new and try new things. The parent’s eyes just perked up when we started talking about this approach to services, and about helping individuals achieve their highest level of independence. They said, ‘WOW’!

We know that there is a clear difference between ‘diversional’ activities that keep people busy, and ‘therapeutic’ activities which have a goal, a method and a purpose. It’s a whole new language for people. We take pride in knowing that, with increased independence, the people we work with will gain a greater ability to speak for themselves and to choose the life they want. Promoting independence for people with disabilities is a journey. When we commit to supporting people on this journey, the end result is life-changing.” - Emily Marino, ODC Therapeutic Recreation Specialist

WHAT IS DAY SERVICES? Day Services provide life skills training that helps people achieve their highest level of independence at home, in the workplace and in the community. Engaging, challenging activities focused on increased physical fitness / wellness, self-confidence and leadership, safety awareness,

interpersonal and social skills, adult life skill-building, travel and recreation, and self-advocacy take place in ODC’s centers and in the community. This service is supported in part by Inclusa, Inc.

Cooking activities foster team work and increased independence in daily life. Activities, like canoeing, that take individuals out of their “comfort zone” boost self-esteem and confidence. Planting a garden helps to develop fine motor skills; watching your garden grow brings a sense of pride and accomplishment. Games provide participants opportunities to practice social skills, improve focus and concentration, and develop healthy winning and losing attitudes.

PROJECT SEARCH

Tyler wasn’t going to join Project SEARCH - he didn’t think it was the program for him. But he took a chance… and now, he says that it’s the best thing that ever happened to him! “When I got my Project SEARCH acceptance letter, I didn’t know what to do,” said Tyler. “I almost made the decision not to join. I figured it would not do anything for me.” “That has changed in the last year,” he said. “It didn’t take me long to figure out that Project SEARCH is where I belong.” Tyler had fulfilled his graduation requirements at Lincoln High School in 2017. Instead of receiving his diploma, he chose a Project SEARCH internship at Aspirus Riverview Hospital and Clinics, and is now preparing for the world of work and a 2018 graduation ceremony. At Aspirus, he takes part in one hour of classroom studies each day which focus on interviewing skills, building resumes and soft skills – all activities that will help him get and keep a job. The rest of Tyler’s day is spent learning and practicing work skills in internship rotations throughout Aspirus departments – three total during the school year. “Tyler was the first Project SEARCH intern to work in our department,” said Ali Mancl, Clinic Manager of Aspirus Doctors Clinic, “and our experience was amazing!”

When planning this internship, Tyler’s second rotation of the year, Ali met with ODC’s Project SEARCH staff to identify needs within their Pediatric Department. Cleaning and restocking exam rooms between patients topped the list, and Tyler proved to be so efficient that, according to Ali, “We kept getting comments that the rooms never looked so clean!” As time went on, the turn-over of Family Practice rooms and cleaning of some common areas were added to his responsibilities. “Project SEARCH is an amazing opportunity for young adults to get the work experience they need,” said Ali. Tyler very much agrees. “I used to walk with my head down, because I didn’t want to talk to people,” said Tyler. “In this past year, I have gained more confidence. I have become more social with people at my job and they make me want to get up every day and go to work. I am more talkative with people outside of Project SEARCH and in my community.” “This is the best year,” said Tyler, “and the best decision I have ever made!” Ali (left) and other staff at the Aspirus Doctors Clinic really embraced Tyler (right). “He was very emotional when the internship was over,” said Jan Villeneuve, ODC Training Specialist. “Everyone was praising the job that he had done.” Prospective interns recently met one-on-one with Wausau Project SEARCH staff to gauge their readiness for the program.

WHAT IS PROJECT SEARCH? Project SEARCH is a partnership between ODC, Inclusa, Inc., local school districts, and host businesses Marshfield Health Systems in Marshfield, Aspirus Riverview Hospital & Clinics in Wisconsin Rapids, and Aspirus Wausau Hospital. Project SEARCH services are funded in partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development - Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR). Project SEARCH participants spend their last year of high school at a host business location, studying curriculum that focuses on work and independent life readiness, and rotating through three different internships within the workplace setting. The coursework is taught by a school district instructor dedicated to Project SEARCH, who

works alongside ODC training specialists to support participants as they perform their internships in various departments. These training specialists provide interns with training and support throughout their rotations, help them prepare for the job search and interview process, and assist them in finding and keeping a job after graduation. Project SEARCH is an internationally recognized model of employment training for young adults with disabilities. The program was developed in 1996 by Nurse J. Erin Riehle, then the director of the emergency department at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC). As the flagship program, CCHMC provides technical assistance for replication and overall leadership to Project SEARCH worldwide.

GETTING READY FOR PROJECT SEARCH IN WAUSAU A group of interns was just accepted into ODC’s new Project SEARCH program at Aspirus Wausau Hospital, which will begin with the 2018-2019 school year! Schools from local districts referred students and their families to an “information night” in January, where prospective interns assessed their interest and submitted applications. Next, those prospective interns were invited to a “skills assessment day”, where the whole Project SEARCH team met one-on-one with individuals to gauge their readiness for the program, much like a job interview process. Those selected will join the new class at Aspirus Wausau Hospital in the fall. Preparation for this project’s inaugural class began in late 2016. Because ODC is a partner in the very successful Project SEARCH program at Aspirus Riverview Hospital and Clinics in Wisconsin Rapids, hospital staff from that location were able to assist department managers at the Wausau location in understanding how the program works and how to make it successful. “The partnership between staff at the two Aspirus locations has been excellent,” said Ann Lepak, ODC Director of Employment Services. “Those who have been working with the Project SEARCH program in Wisconsin Rapids have been attending planning meetings and have been instrumental in helping Wausau navigate all the pieces that need to fall into place. Sharing experiences has made Wausau staff very comfortable and knowledgeable. We are all ready to go!”

58 out of 64

Project SEARCH interns in Marshfield & Wisconsin Rapids were employed in the community upon completion of the program.

2 individuals pursued further education at the college level Project SEARCH has been serving young people with disabilities in Marshfield since 2011; the Wisconsin Rapids inaugural class launched in 2015.
