Adults with Learning Disabliities Find Meaningful Work

Erin Kiltz was worried about what her daughter, a Georgetown High School student who has a severe brain injury and cannot walk or talk, was going to do after she finished high school.
"Its the No. 1 fear of a parent of a special-needs child," Kiltz said, that "she will outlive me, and what will her future hold."
Kiltz did something about that fear. About a year ago, she established a nonprofit program that gives adults with learning and physical disabilities a job during the day, doing such things as making granola and pottery in free rooms donated by the Georgetown Church of Christ.
