Notre Dame School Partners with Launchability

Four Notre Dame School students had a wonderful training experience this summer.  We were invited to partner with Launchability (a premier employment service for persons with developmental disabilities) for a training program at Baylor Hospital.  This was a six- week immersion program whereby the students work alongside their peers in various departments throughout the hospital.  I was able to attend the students’ graduation and was so moved by the commendations they received from their peers and their supervisors.  The students were so proud of their accomplishments!  As these students returned to school after their job experience ended, they showed renewed enthusiasm for working as well as greater stamina on their community job sites.  I would like to thank Launchability and Baylor Hospital for this opportunity and I hope that it will encourage other businesses in our community to consider hiring and training persons with disabilities.
