Reaching out to students and families before they graduate high school is an important aspect of our strategic direction at LiveWorkPlay. Last night Keenan Wellar and Allison Moores had the opportunity to speak to a big turnout of parents and family members at St. Peter High School in Orleans, where they were joined by other Developmental Services organizations including Service Coordination for People with Developmental Disabilities. Allison handled questions while Keenan made a presentation about the Community First approach to supporting a good life for people with intellectual disabilities. "This is what I needed to hear" said the mother of a graduating student. "If I don't expect my son to have a full life in the community, neither will anybody else. Great message."
