Academy chains are fast becoming a byword for financial finagling, but WCAT is the first to be wound up.
WCAT was awarded a three-year grant from RMRTI with a budget of $60,000.
Another key component of WCAT activities involved the acquiring of a wide range of assistive devices kept on-site.
It was a WCAT commitment to award a wide range of devices and services assisting a variety of needs.
State vocational rehabilitation, civic groups, local government, disability advocacy groups, and volunteer organizations are just some of the sources that WCAT was able to work with and receive contributions.
(1) Empowerment - With an ongoing focus on consumer education and decision making, WCAT did have a positive impact upon facilitating empowerment.
WCAT handled each request from an individualized perspective.
Not only did this bring a healthy mix of ideas and perspectives, but it also greatly increased WCAT's ability to network.
(4) Local services - As a community based program, WCAT was often able to access local services and vendors.
