We offer four primary types of services: Adaptations for Living, Community & Organizational Supports, Employment Training & Consultation, and Wholistic Practices.
Networks believes in leveling the playing field so that life activities, work and play are accessible to all. Our team can help explore options and brainstorm practical solutions to make everyone’s world more comfortable and accessible through alternative communication options, adaptive software, use of apps, various assistive technology tools both high and low tech, sensory strategies as well as environmental modifications. Networks is also dedicated to promoting inclusive communities beginning with our youngest community members. Over the years, we have worked in partnership with children, their families and schools to develop individualized strategies and supports that promote inclusive environments and enrich educational experiences for all.
Networks is a 501C3 Charitable non-profit organization but we actively study, practice, and disseminate information to others on current trends from our ’business world’ colleagues as well as from the ‘not for profit world’, as part of our Community & Organizational Supports. While we are best known for our primary activities assisting people with disabilities to live inclusive and fulfilling lives, we have also become recognized for our somewhat different approach to organizational structure and infrastructure, management practices, and day-to-day operations. These core beliefs and foundations in promoting person-centered practices, visionary approaches, and inclusive communities have helped us create a vibrant and viable enterprise with true expertise to assist other organizations (both for profit and non-profit), businesses, and communities.
The very roots of Networks are based on a belief that ‘work’ is a right and a possibility for all. Networks supports the values of Employment 1st – that employment should be the first option available for all, regardless of disability. This belief has given birth to our employment services for individuals, their supporters and teams including transition and career development consultation (for all ages), exploration and discovery of individual situations, and collaborative and innovative services. Networks is also dedicated to promoting inclusive communities beginning with our youngest community members. Over the years, we have worked in partnership with children, their families and schools to develop individualized strategies and supports that promote inclusive environments and enrich educational experiences for all.
Today, many of us are taking more active control of our health through choices in diet, exercise, lifestyle, and spiritual practices. Various “alternative treatments” abound for us to choose from, which many of us add in to our personal wellness practices. Unfortunately, the sick, elderly, those in lower socio-economic groups, and those with disabilities are strikingly less likely to be utilizing these healthful practices. In other words, those who may need the help most may have the least access to it. Over time Networks has developed a service area dedicated to providing individuals and organizations the opportunity to learn about these “alternative treatments”. We have also built a network of practitioners who offer their services to others, and are helping others learn more about these various modalities. Through our Wholistic Practices we have the opportunity to bring fun and increased wellness to many we know!
