What Does a Trainer Do?

Our trainers help people with disabilities build skills at home and in the community. The day-to-day responsibilities may vary slightly depending on the individual and whether you’re focused on daily life skills training or personal futures planning, but the overall goal is to help our clients build confidence and self-sufficiency.

In a nutshell, our trainers:

  • Build relationships with clients and their families
  • Foster independence by working on targeted goals/skills
  • Work within a client’s home and the community
  • Have fun

“I love being a consistent person in my client’s life that can support her progress toward independence with everyday things.  It’s great to look back and see how far she’s come. I love being a part of that!”

“What I love about working at Focus on Freedom is building a unique relationship with each client and their family and being able to make a positive difference in their lives. I love spending time with the kids I work with and seeing them make progress toward goals! My job never feels like work and I always leave with a sense of purpose and accomplishment.”

How You're Set Up for Success

When you join the Focus on Freedom team, we want you to succeed as much as we want our clients to succeed. While our trainers do have a lot of freedom and flexibility, we offer a variety of resources to support you every step of the way.

When you first join the team, we provide training and resources to get you up and running. You’ll get hands-on and one-on-one training, which is tailored specifically to your skillset and the individual you will be helping, so you feel prepared and empowered before meeting with a client one-on-one. 

Training includes:

Job shadowing:
You will follow and observe another employee working with a client.

Working with a lead trainer:
You will work alongside a lead trainer who will be the primary trainer responsible for the individual’s care, and will guide you and provide instruction for how to provide care.

Trying your skills out:
Next, you’ll work directly with the client as the trainer, and a lead trainer will be there to observe and answer any questions you might have. Once you and the family feel comfortable, you will begin working on your own.

All of our trainers have ongoing calls to discuss progress, ask questions, and brainstorm ideas. These calls generally occur monthly but can be more frequent if needed. It’s a great way to stay connected and break down barriers together.

We also provide hands-on support and training by joining trainers on-site as needed throughout their relationship with the client. We’ll observe training sessions and give feedback and additional help as needed.
