Check out monthly "Tips" from me on Alternative Community Training website

Most of you know that I work for a great organization here in Columbia called ACT, Alternative Community Training.  I will now be writing a "tip" a month on various ideas and strategies on the ACT blog/newsletter.  I hope that parents, grandparents, or even teachers can find the ideas helpful.   You can find the first "Tip from Tara" blog here.  

If you have any ideas,questions or topics that you would like me to write about please leave me a comment here or on our Autism Pirate Facebook page.  

ACT, founded in 1975 is a not-for-profit, nationally accredited, (by CARF private agency which provides services to over 400 individuals with disabilities throughout Mid-Missouri annually.

I actually worked at ACT during college as a direct support staff and for the year after college I spent in Columbia before moving to St. Louis when I begin working for Becky Blackwell at Judevine Center for Autism.  I worked in the residential services program that is now a part of the program at Easter Skills Life Skills.  Both Judevine and Easter Skills Life Skills provide services to many individuals across the state of Missouri.  

I have always said that every job I've had has prepared me for the next, ACT to Judevine Center to Case Management in Colorado and back to ACT.  I guess for me, all professional roads start and end at ACT, at least for now anyway!  Who knows where my professional life may lead me, but for now I am happy working for an organization that provides many outstanding services to both children and adults.  If you would like to follow "Tips from Tara" checkout our website or "like" the ACT Facebook page here.
