Research

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.
