Possibilities is the product of intensive research and collaboration with clinical and academic experts in the field of learning challenges – including top consultants from the University of Illinois.
Drawing from evidence-based research findings, Discover Goodwill identified four key areas of skill development that will provide the framework for Possibilities including:
- Health and Wellness
- Leisure and Recreation
- Education and Academics
- Time Occupation
The focus of Possibilities is proactive choice. Clients will have hands-on experiences, with an emphasis on experiential learning while being encouraged to take initiative in their efforts. They won’t just hear about a more abundant life, they’ll actually engage in it. And as they participate, they’ll experience the rewards of their accomplishments through a token-based purchasing system that allows them to spend what they’ve earned in the town square's general store.
