Madison Wisconsin Family – Work Stories

Madison-Promise-Donation

Challenges and Goals: In the Madison area, a youth with autism was seeking a job in the field of computer repair and graphic designer.

Choices and Opportunities:  She partnered with her Wisconsin Promise DVR Counselor and already has had three paid jobs in retail (currently still working at one of these) and is now working towards her job goal of Computer Repair Graphic Design for which she plans to go to a technical two year college leading to a four year college.

Promising Progress:  Her mom is also working with the Wisconsin Promise DVR Counselor on finding a better job in an office setting that pays more and includes benefits.  The youth would like to someday move out, be independent, and not be on benefits anymore, something her mother fully supports.
