Notable Achievements for May 2018:
- Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired: One of the Training and Adjustment Services graduates was highlighted by the Daily Herald for starting a new woodworking business. In the article, he speaks very favorably of the training program he attended at DSBVI and the growth he received while here. He is currently selling his woodwork products at the Provo Farmers Market.
- Services for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing: DSDHH held an event inviting the Hard of Hearing and Deaf community to learn about using technology to hear and feel music. Participants were able to hear music using bluetooth and t-coil technology and feel through vibrating platforms. About 90 people were in attendance for this first time event. Also this month, the Senior Citizens club went on a field trip to the Utah Hogle Zoo. This event is a popular event, which allows Senior Citizens to mingle with others with no communication barriers and prevents isolation that sometimes exists in Deaf and Hard of Hearing communities. There were approximately 35 people in attendance for what has become an annual event.
- Rehabilitation Services: The Vocational Rehabilitation Program assisted 139 clients in obtaining successful competitive and integrated employment. In addition, 51 clients were released from the Order of Selection wait list to start working towards developing individualized plans for employment.
