A typical day for this program really depends on how the client is feeling that day if happy client's compliance with instructions, if not clients can be withdrawn themselves from the activities and task given to them.
Learning occurs when learning about the client and their behaviors. Its' a learning process to be flexible of using items or surrounding that helps a client and their target function for the client.
The program is managed by two to three individuals that overall watch and advice the program. These people are great and fun to interact with besides the clients.
The workplace alone is all about the clients it's about the clients and giving them the best effort as we can.
The hardest part, overall I do not find it hard, its part a job that I chose to do.
Overall, I just enjoy what I do and give my best efforts.
