The basics of the Independent Living Program . The nuts and bolts. What controls it. Why Bill gets a tractor and why Jim gets something to pull his socks up with and a grab bar next to the crapper. This is VR&E 101 for beginners. Most VR&E employees will steadfastly deny it until you point it out. Even then they think it has to have some magic “vocational”-i.e. of or having to do with working, training or preparing to get work- connotation. This is where they lack training. If you only had one copy of the Bible and the guys up at the monastery were in charge of the production of same, you’d have no idea if a chapter was missing. If no one told you, Mr. GS 8 VR&E Intake specialist in Oz , Kansas, that there was a program for the severely disabled that entailed avocational pursuits (read hobbies), you’d be forgiven. When the guys in charge in Wichita tell you there’s no such thing, you have an agency-wide conspiracy to suppress the true scope of a valuable program.
We’re going to learn how they deny. Why they deny. Where all the money goes that ISN’T used for ILP and the scalawag salaries paid for this travesty of justice. As some know, I am appealing my denial for a greenhouse to the BVA. It could just as easily have been a riding lawnmower, a woodworking shop or a photography suite of software and a computer to assemble beautiful graphic video productions on an amateur scale. The actual pastime is immaterial. The pleasure and mental well-being derived from it is the essence of the program, always has been and is now being demolished as “too rich for our blood.”
The MSOL program does not require a thesis or exams to fulfill graduation requirements. Instead, the program has students prepare a final summary that contains all the artifacts of their work over the two years of the program. This Integrated Leadership Project includes an introduction, ten response papers (one for each course), 30 annotated bibliographies, a capstone summary, a comprehensive list of references, and other projects completed throughout the program, the latter to be included at the discretion of the students. Today Dr. Deb Jeannett, full-time MSOL faculty member, two alums, and one current student (soon to graduate) will join John to discuss this unique aspect of the MSOL program.
Kevin Sandy (Cayuga) Program Director of the Iroquois Lacrosse Program will appear on tonight's episode with host Vincent Schilling to discuss how the Iroquois Lacrosse Program was established to provide quality interactive instructional and leadership sessions in box, field and indoor Lacrosse. --- According to their mission statement, the program was created, “to provide leadership camps, instructional clinics and motivational sessions to inspire youth.” --- The programs directors and instructional staff are also available to conduct motivational and inspirational sessions to students, youth, schools, communities or international countries who truly want to understand what the game of Lacross is all about (ie. cultural education/awareness) and why it's important for people to strive for excellence and commit to achieving their goals through self-motivational tactics and personal empowerment. ------------ Tijer Lily Co, a Native American Arts and Entertainment Company that provides a wide variety of services, is pleased and honored to be working with the Iroquois Lacrosse Program with their Public Relations, Media and Community Relations in the US and elsewhere for this Native American Youth Lacrosse Summit specifically, and the program in general.
