What I like about the company

I like that children and adults are given assistance with disabilities.

What I dislike about the company

I do not the communication between all members and staff. Each supervisor attends meetings and do not relay the information to their instructors and do not follow the directives the way it was explained to them. Little training to perform the job at a high level of quality to help individuals with autism, behaviors, physical, and learning disability. Training given to one individual especially the instructors are not expanded upon in the classroom or discussed as a team. The consistency is an issue as well they state one thing and within a couple of weeks it has gone back to previous method or a new method is interested.
