We extend our congratulations to an individual supported by Rimland who recently secured community-based employment at an Evanston boutique called Envy. She works during the mornings on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays and helps with sorting, folding, and displaying clothing items and accessories.
Our son is nonverbal, but by his body language, we gather that he is proud, happy, he feels accepted and important, and that he belongs to an extended family – Rimland. Rimland nurtures his self-esteem, structures his daily activities, and installs goals. He used to be crabby, but now we often see him smile.
