While with Reading Specialists my duties encompassed group facilitation, employment management, and program development, for which I developed a strong passion and aptitude. Among other programs, I was charged with re-developing and administering a V.S. program aimed at reducing the frequency of negative client action. This, paired with various other counseling techniques helped us lower the recidivism rate from 25% to 5%. I also had the opportunity to develop of implement an employment program aimed at finding long-term job opportunities for those previously considered unemployable by blending both social learning and various marketing/recruiting techniques.
