“I remember her having a lot of apprehension,” recalls Patrick Sandy of a meeting with a mother on why her son could succeed in supported employment. When her son was born, physicians told her to put him in an institution and forget about him. Now, Patrick was trying to explain to her why supported employment would be a great thing. He promised the mother her son could return to the workshop if it did not work out. It took a while, but the son found a job. The employer told Patrick, “I don’t know how we did what we do before he was here.” <br/>Patrick was President/CEO of Easterseals Crossroads in Indianapolis when he was interviewed in 2016.
