Congrats to the October Employee Spotlight recipient, Sarah Boucher!
Active Supports training has taught us the importance of making sure that everybody has opportunities to participate in life as much as possible, completing tasks or parts of tasks themselves instead of having staff do things for them. Sarah integrates Active Supports principles into finances! ABLE accounts are designed so that people can save money for the future without jeopardizing benefits. Sarah provides individualized support to each person and/or guardian when opening an account. When she works with the program enrollee in person, she has him or her participate as much as possible, including giving them the opportunity to click the “submit” button on the online application.
