Learning to Work
Adults who have special learning needs CAN accomplish vocational skills and experience success.
BrightStone’s main objective is to provide training in job skills and productive work habits so adults with special needs can show the world what they CAN do! With assistance and guidance they CAN accomplish work as independently as their own potential allows.
With the concept of on-the-job training combined with teaching presented in various modalities, students learn more than ever imagined. Whether painting a terra cotta clay pot or glazing individually pressed clay pieces, or mixing ingredients for bath salts or bath lotion, their work becomes a true “work of art” as they put their hands and their hearts into every product they make.
Each job is broken down into its individual tasks and each student works at his or her own pace completing a task at their ability level. With 3 vocational areas to choose from the students learn a variety of skills as they work on individual work goals.
Our desire is that each adult SHINE BRIGHTLY as they achieve success at their job thus finding fulfillment in life. One parent has stated, “Each of us deserves to have a reason to get up each morning and something of value to do.” This is BrightStone’s goal for each of our students.
