Many individuals want to work and earn a paycheck but are not able to work independently in the community. At KCTC, consumers have the opportunity to work on paid contract work. They complete various assembly-type jobs and are paid by how many pieces they correctly assemble.
Some also work on hourly jobs such as housekeeping, where they are paid based on a 90/10 evaluation. The piece rate and 90/10 evaluations assess consumers’ productivity, which are then written into a production goal in their Habilitation Plan. All consumers at KCTC also have goals that monitor their attendance and any inappropriate behaviors for the work or classroom setting. These goals are implemented by the consumer’s directional trainer and monitored by their QIDP (Qualified Intellectual Disability Professional).
