We’ve been all having a ball this summer at our JIT 2014 Summer Program. The summer program runs throughout the entire summer of 2014. Our program’s goal is to ease the transition from and back to the school year, to continue our students’ academic progress, and to maintain their social growth with fun group activities and trips.
Each day for the student is a balance of keeping busy on their development as well as to enjoy the summer with their friends. The students continue work on individualized table time programs. These programs are vital to communication and cognitive development and should be continued all year round. The summer program is a great opportunity for social skill development with conversation drills, group board games, community field trips, and our group walk exercises. The students also have the opportunity for vocational training through our Med-Vending, Med-Market, Med-Baking, and Med-Office vocational training programs.
We make each day of our summer program memorable with a variety of fun activities our staff and students love doing together. We have an on-site outdoor swimming pool as well as an indoor pool across the street for Aqua-therapeutics. The students stay active through modified sports and time at the Longwood Recreation Center. Modified group yoga is a great way to unwind after such a busy day. Our Adam is great on the guitar and our students love doing group music therapy with him.
We look forward to the next half of the summer being as excellent as the first half!

Last summer AccessAbility Medcare started a vocational training program called AccessAbility MedVending. This branch of our company placed and maintained several state of the art vending machines in Montgomery County. It’s been a year and we’re happy to say that we’ve made MedVending a successful business as well as an invaluable job training opportunity for our students.
Negil Chacko and German Chacon maintain several vending machines in the Montgomery County area such as AndrewTech Automotive, GlobalNet Services, Anytime Fitness, and our very own Jena’s Integrated Therapeutics center. The snacks sold include healthier alternatives to the junk food sold in most vending machines, and these alternatives include protein bars, fruit juices, and gluten free snacks. Our machines don’t contain candy or sodas.
Our students are responsible for many vital processes vital processes of keeping this business running. Keeping our inventory stock organized can be a challenging task with dozens of items being moved every day but our students keep the stock organized so we can carry on our daily tasks efficiently. Our students also go on site with Negil or German and place the snacks in the respective slots inside of the machines. Lastly, the machines transmit data electronically each day to us. It is the students’ responsibility to decipher this data and advise Negil and German which products need to be restocked or replaced.
We’re looking forward to seeing MedVending grow with our students. MedVending is one of the many ways we’re preparing our children to become confident and productive people.
