Gain Real-Life Experience
Although living with developmental disabilities, Marklund clients may be capable of volunteering off-site at businesses that provide specialized vocational opportunities. Through Marklund’s Developmental Training program, clients are given the opportunities to build their vocational skills on-site with specialized goals, activities and jobs. Various therapies are included in the Personal Support Plans to assist in the clients’ development. When possible, clients are equipped with communication devises, power wheelchairs and other specialized equipment that, when paired with job coaches, allow them to enjoy the experience of working at a job.
From packaging, sorting and assembling to greeting and socializing, our clients are willing to take on many kinds of specialized assignments.
Companies who are interested in learning more about partnering with Marklund on vocational opportunities should contact Jeannie Stefanik, Developmental Training Program Manager, at 630-593-5500.
