Calgary Alternative Support Services (CASS) is a great supportive organization. All of the programs and services are client centered, no matter what the client needs or wants he/she receives. Along with recreational and fun activities everyone participates in, the individuals are also assisted with daily living skills and receives help in their workplace. Although assistance is required within their jobs and skills, the client has independence to accomplish as much on their own as they can.
From CASS I've learned patience, how to teach the individuals with various learning strategies, and how to cope and handle each persons disability. The most rewarding part was knowing I was making a difference in someones life regardless of long or short term effects.
