About the Program
Living independently and reaching specific goals is the outcome of habilitation. The underlying ability to achieve and maintain these skills is resiliency and grist. At the kernel of the human experience are these six life skills that cannot be mastered but require ongoing attention and practice:
- Caring through learning and practicing empathy
- Awareness of ourselves and others
- Navigating feelings and emotions
- Viewpoint and growth mindset
- Adapting to change
CANVAS is a remote-based curriculum offered through ACHIEVE’s Community Based Prevocational Services. The service is for people who cannot access the community but still desire to work toward their Vocational and Employment goals. People who participate in the curriculum must have internet access and hardware (tablet, smart phone, or computer) that will allow them to meet with their service provider, remotely via Zoom. This curriculum is offered to people who live in Broome, Tioga, and Chenango Counties.
If you are more interested in learning about the CANVAS curriculum, please contact Charles Quigley, Coordinator of Community Based Prevocational Services firstname.lastname@example.org; P (607) 308-1095; ACHIEVE,125 Cutler Pond Road, Binghamton, NY 13905
