George brings to this work an extensive construction background from the field with experience gained from the completion of over 1,500 person-centered projects. He has contributed to the closure of three major state institutions adding significantly to this effort by creating community-based person-centered physical environments that work and make sense for the people who live and work there. More than 1,000 individuals previously institutionalized now live in their community in homes developed, designed and/or constructed by Mr. Braddock.
In addition to developing welcoming and inclusive multi-family housing opportunities for people with ID/DD, George's work involves developing inclusive, authentic community opportunities for people with disabilities. Further, he has recently been published by the State of New York, Office of People with Developmental Disabilities: Making Homes That Work: A Resource Guide for Families Living with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Co-occurring Behaviors.
This is a two-hour training from George Braddock on a person centered approach to environmental supports. The event will be broadcast by OTAC to registered webinar participants. Limited seating is also available in Salem at the OTAC office.
