I had no idea how well IKUS equipped me for the professional world until I began my first career job and surprised myself by how prepared I actually felt. IKUS provided me with hands on experience with a multitude of disabilities and personalities. I quickly learned how to redirect challenging behaviors, be creative with interventions for fine/gross motor skills, social skills and coping skills, empower individuals and to maintain composure in overwhelming and tasking situations. –Kristen, CTRS, Skill Building and CLS Mentor
