Moving Toward Competitive Employment

If you work at the School of the Holy Childhood, and you haven't gotten your blood pressure checked in a while, you might be getting a note from Jan Bansbach.When she's not wrapping up cords or cleaning remotes in the school's Partners With Industry sheltered workshop, Bansbach, who is developmentally disabled, is helping out in the school's health office as a nursing assistant. Checking blood pressures is one of her specialties.She likes her job. Ask her and she'll tell you all about it, noting that she can't share any patient's information — that's confidential.
But her voice gets a little quieter when she talks about the notion of leaving the School of the Holy Childhood and trying to find work elsewhere.
