Sitting in on a staff meeting for the Families Together Therapeutic Preschool is like being invited to the most endearing of family gatherings. Rice crispy treats are passed around. One teacher, Tammy Kittelson, is cutting apples out of construction paper. They start the meeting off by sharing thankful anecdotes one by one for Kim Kokett, a teacher who was promoted.
Judy Reisman first learned about Lifetrack at her synagogue, Shir Tikvah, when another congregate member announced that children in Lifetrack’s preschool were in need of warm winter accessories. Judy knew she could help. She had knitting skills, after all!
In a recent study, Lifetrack wanted to know more about what types of mentoring and support is most helpful for families with young children who have hearing loss. In response, Lifetrack contracted with Wilder Research to conduct a needs assessment for families with young children, age 0-6, who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing.
CARF International announced that Lifetrack has been re-accredited for a period of three years for its Community Employment Services: Employment Supports and Job Development. This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards.
