Friday we celebrated a legend. 🏆
Lori Kroeger dedicated 26 years to serving individuals to assist with determining their career goals and helping them achieve those goals. Vocational evaluation can be an intimidating process, but Lori always made people feel supported and respected.
She was not only an expert at vocational evaluation, but she also invested into her colleagues to help build a strong evaluation team. Her passion is contagious and her knowledge is unparalleled. She also always brings the fun.
Although she is ending this part of her career journey, Lori will always be a part of ADRS Lakeshore, and her influence will live on in all those teammates she invested in over the years.
Thank you Lori for all those you have impacted and ⚜️laissez le bon temps rouler. ⚜️

A little history:

June 2 will mark the 100-year anniversary of what many of us in the field of rehabilitation counseling consider the inception of our specialty counseling area. On June 2, 1920, President Woodrow Wilson signed the Smith-Fess Act (also known as the Civilian Vocational Rehabilitation Act), which established the first vocational rehabilitation program for Americans with disabilities. It was modeled on an earlier law that provided for the rehabilitation of World War I veterans with disabilities.

Rehabilitation counseling is a unique specialty area of counseling focused primarily on disability advocacy and vocational rehabilitation counseling for individuals with disabilities. The field continues to grow, with new and expanding educational programs, opportunities for state licensure, and rewarding career paths. Certification is available through the Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification (crccertification.com), and opportunities for counselor licensure are available in all 50 states. Recent developments in our field have further strengthened our relationship with the counseling profession at large and fostered opportunities for increased collaboration and education regarding disability inclusion in our profession as a whole.

https://ct.counseling.org/2020/02/celebrating-the-role-of-rehabilitation-counseling/

Rehabilitation counseling is a counseling specialty that embraces social justice, multiculturalism, disability advocacy and inclusion.

This is specific to Hoover but you might check with your local police department to see what they do with Autism (and other disabilities) awareness.



Attention Hoover residents that have family members with AUTISM (and other invisible disabilities) !!!!

Special needs notification service offered by Hoover PD

Hoover residents, if you have a family member with special needs (for example, a child or an adult on the autism spectrum, intellectual or developmental disability, Alzheimer’s/dementia patient, etc.) there is a way for you to communicate those needs with us prior to an emergency. You can contact our 911 Public Safety Communications Center and request a “notification” be placed on your address.

Hoover 911 Communications Center personnel can create a notification “flag” in our dispatch system that would alert the Dispatcher on duty to relay the pertinent special needs information to First Responders (Police/Fire) prior to their arrival at your address.

Information needed from the caregiver (kept confidential):
• Address
• Emergency contact name
• Emergency contact numbers (several, if possible)
• Special needs information (VERY IMPORTANT!)

Please include specific information about your family member that might assist responders, including sensory concerns. Some examples include: does not like bright lights, loud noises (which might include a walkie-talkie or siren), is scared of strangers, is obsessed with “fill in the blank” (this could help responders establish a rapport), or ANYTHING else you as the care provider think we need to know! We want to keep the situation calm and safe while we assist you and your family.

How do you take advantage of this service?

Here’s how:
• Hoover PD website - https://www.hooverpd.com/special-needs-notification-program.php
• Collin Nelson, Hoover 911 Communications Manager (205) 739-7076 Office
• General Administrative line (205) 444-7640

As always, please dial 911 for emergencies and (205) 822-5300 for non-emergencies.

We are going to call this Motivated Monday. 🥰
The last several years ADRS Lakeshore has done a food drive in the month of November. It is always a special event but this year was very special to us.
This year our food drive was in honor of our late co-worker and friend, Flo Vance.
Sabrina Wren headed up this project and we donated 962 items to Flo’s church, Eden Westside Baptist Church.
Flo always participated in our food drives and we know the donation to her church would have made her feel special.
