SKSF LONG TIME CLIENT FINDING EMPLOYMENT AT LOCAL WALMART
During National Disability Employment Awareness Month, Special Kids Special Families would like to highlight Logan Kelso, whom we've watched grow from a boy into a young man, first meeting him when Zach's Place was still located in downtown Colorado Springs and Logan was in elementary school. Logan has transitioned into attending our Adult Day programs and enjoys his time doing activities at the center and in the community.
Logan recently started training for a part time position at a local Walmart. With the recent popularity of online ordering, working as a Personal Shopper is offering a fun new job for many, including those with a disability. Logan is an adult with Autism who will be supported on-site with a Job Coach provided through Colorado's Department of Vocational Rehabilitation.
He has worked very hard in clinical and behavior therapy to develop coping skills he needs to meet his goals. This May, Logan graduated with the class of 2020 from Coronado High School. His friends and family are so proud to see him succeed! His relationship continues to evolve with SKSF as he grows into a fine young adult. It's exciting to see Logan's hard work paying off in big ways! Maybe you'll find him at the Woodmen & Powers Walmart when you are out grabbing your own essentials. Be sure to say hello! Congratulations Logan!
