In Tears over Therap!!!

So the message I received this morning in my email was that a Training Management Supervisor was literally in tears over seeing the features that are available in the TMS (Training Management System).  I was then asked by the Director of the agency if it was Therap’s intent to bring people to tears with our software?  My response, absolutely if the tears are tears of joy!

It is always great to hear how Therap is making a real difference in the lives of the people who are out in the field making a difference everyday.  This person upon seeing how her job was going to be made easier by utilizing TMS in Therap was obviously pretty excited.

I hear a lot of suggestions of how to make the system better, and that is great keep em coming.  I hear a lot of ways of how we should improve things, and we are.  But it is also good to hear every once in a while how Therap is a pretty awesome solution right now and making a difference in the lives of individual all across the Midwest and beyond.

We are getting ready for our summer release in the several weeks ahead.  I have seen some of the things that are coming and they are pretty exciting.  Be sure and stay tuned into what coming you may end up with a tear or two coming to your eyes.  Tears of Joy that is!

Hope all is well in the Therap Midwest, plan now to be apart of the NATIONAL CONVENTION in KC January 2014!

Therap Midwest Welcomes Jordan Mar to the Team!!!

Welcome to the Team

Here is a little Bio from Jordan…

I graduated from Lincoln Northeast High School in 2007. While there I was on the dance team, student council, a student ambassador, the youth leadership academy, and part of a program calling Pershing Pals where I spent my lunch hour twice a week with an elementary school student who needed some extra support. I then moved to Utah where I began working for a school for kids with special needs called Dan Peterson. I was in a classroom with teenage students who had communication barriers which often led to challenging behaviors. While at Dan Peterson I also worked for Rise doing in home support for children and adults with special needs who were in a family setting. I also helped run a summer program for Rise and did respite care on the weekends.

I moved back to Nebraska in September of 2009 and began pursuing a degree in education at the University of Nebraska. While attending the University I also worked in the public schools as an early childhood special education paraprofessional working mainly with 3-5 year old’s who had Autism or another developmental delays. After working back in the schools for a year and a half I took the opportunity to participate in the Management Training Program through Developmental Services of Nebraska. I assisted with two group homes in Nebraska. One was a home for young boys with Autism and the other was a home for men who were considered to be high risk to the community. After completion of the program I moved to Kansas City, Missouri where I was the Residential Supervisor for five homes in the Kansas City area. I am currently working on completing my degree in Early Childhood Education through the distance education program provided by the University of Nebraska.

Therap Sponsors Missouri Association of Rehabilitation Facilities

This past week it was great for Chris and myself to attend the MARF Legislative Dinner in Jefferson City, MO which Therap sponsored.  We had an opportunity to connect with many of the MARF agencies that are involved with MARF as well as elected state leaders from around the state of MO.  It was great to be able to tell so many different people about the value that Therap brings to the developmental disability field.  Therap currently partners with many of the existing agencies that are members of MARF in providing a documentation solution.  If you are a member and not using Therap it really is in your agency’s best interest to give us a call to discuss how we can make a difference in your agency.
