Six graduate from the PLUS Co.'s INCOME program
Six students, with various intellectual disabilities, recently graduated from the INCOME program operated by The PLUS Company of Nashua.
According to officials with The PLUS Co., the program prepares students for full or part-time jobs using a combination of classroom learning and on-the-job training to help students strengthen and develop clerical skills such as scanning, copying, data entry, phone use and filing.
According to a release from Cynthia Andreola, director of marketing and communication for The PLUS Co., the graduates are now beginning their employment search.
"One of the things that I observed through our internship was that people with developmental disabilities have highly developed abilities as well," said Panny. "Many administrative tasks that consume pieces of time from staff members can be consolidated into a specific job function, increasing productivity across the board and increasing job satisfaction."
