The purpose of this department is to train and assess the individual consumers for potential growth and advancement to a workshop environment or supportive employment, etc. A workshop provides us the contract that we perform it at the base program. The consumers are paid through the token economy (as a positive reinforcement) and not for productivity. The program carries a Sub-Minimum Wage certificate issued by the Department of Labor. Should the consumer reach a level that would be acceptable to a workshop, we will then recommend referral to a workshop. Remembering the basis of the token economy money is based on improving behaviors, not on productivity.
