J. D. entered WWRC after recommendations for business from our Vocational Evaluation Department. He also completed Life Skills, the Communication Skills Group, and entered the Business School for an assessment - and was recommended for full enrollment in the Records Data Base Management training in 2011. He completed the driving classes and was able to obtain his license after further practice at home. J.D. received excellent reports from his training instructor, as well as from his internship site supervisors with the Valley Community Services Board. He graduated in March 2012, and returned home to volunteer, as well as take some accounting classes. He was referred to Choice Group and worked with Erica Johnson to conduct his job search. During the course of his job hunt, a position of Staff Assistant in Human Resources became available through the Office of Inspector General at the U.S. Postal Service. J.
