Work with adults with developmental disabilities in their homes and in the community to teach a variety of independent living skills which are tailored to each individual's specific needs. Examples are cooking skills, money management skills, or social skills. Teaching Counselors provide transportation to the bank, grocery store, work, leisure activities, medical appointments and other places the consumers need and want to go. In addition, TC's are responsible for overseeing medical, dental and mental health needs and ensure that all medications are taken as prescribed as well as maintaining contact with consumers' family, guardian, and work supervisor.
