Cognitive Skills Specialist, Akron, Ohio - July 9, 2015
Everyday is an adventure. Each client and staff member has unique personalities and characteristics that must be considered as we work together towards effective social change. As a cognitive skills specialist the days include facilitation (both preparing and implementing) of related cognitive skills programming, computer documentation (results, logs, sanctions, and rewards), scheduling classes, team/staff meetings & training sessions, and interacting with clients. The latter is done by making ourselves available for assistance with homework, listening to concerns, and problem solving various situations that residents encounter as part of their experience in this Community-based Correctional Facility. Great starter job.
