[nfbmi-talk] regarding training center move

 Here I am talking about people with additional disabilities again...I
hoped Anna might find a program at the training center for a couple of
weeks next summer.  I know, however, that she and some others can only
thrive in a setting that is organized and in a program that is
well-planned.  Routines have to be established so that clients can be
confident in the daily processes and the staff who conduct the
programming.  Anna is not the only blind person in Michigan who has a
developmental disability as well.  Anna is employable, and she has career
goals, but if the training center doesn't settle somewhere quickly, there
won't be enough time to get the program together.  I know there are other
adults of all ages who need to be trained in a place that is
well-arranged, well-organized, and with progrems that are well-planned
for the setting.  Thanks....for listening to me rant.  I won't stop
ranting about transition age kids even when Anna is fully employed.
