Assist people with developmental disabilities in learning the ropes of independent living. An Instructor's primary focus is assisting our clients by helping them overcome barriers in a variety of aspects of life. On a given day, an Instructor may help a client learn how to safely cook a meal, schedule a medical appointment, manage time, or assist in a variety of other goals the client may have. In order to fulfill this duty to the client, an Instructor should provide education to the client that may include hands on demonstration, verbal prompting, the use of resources, or other tools to help the client overcome barriers in reaching continued independence. Other duties may include (but are not limited to) emailing, scheduling clients and adhering to your schedule, completion of daily logs, and great communication with fellow employees, clients, and others. Generally speaking, client instruction takes place in a clients home, but at times it may occur in the community. These locations may include the grocery store, the client's doctor's office, and other locations as necessary to help our clients meet their goals.
