ABOUT BALANCE

Balance MI-Skills, LLC provides comprehensive evidence-based employment, relational, soft, and communication skill learning opportunities for teens and adults in group training and workshop settings. The goal is to improve these important skills for forming and maintaining friendships; developing relationships and dating experiences; and promoting effective interactions with co-workers, supervisors, and customers in employment settings. Balance MI-Skills also provides employment services and support in the form of employment preparation skills training (which may be integrated with communications training), customized employment support, job coaching, job shadowing, job sampling, job development, and employer support.

Facilitators are qualified, trained, certified, and/or licensed in behavioral science and delivering training to teens and adults. Both developed and implemented programming for Simply Social, LLC, which was dissolved. All procedures and methodologies used are considered evidence based practice in behavioral and cognitive supports and interventions. Participants are engaged with and learn the material, observe and provide feedback on live and video models, provided real-time feedback and coaching, and pre and post data is collected regularly. Programs are individualized based on input from participants, parents (for teens), facilitator observations, and data collected.
