Vocational Supports MPD
What is Manor Personnel Deployment Inc?
The importance of work for one’s general wellbeing is well established. When we began in 1985, we found that program participants were experiencing limited success accessing traditional employment supports. Research and our experience indicate that people with ASD encounter great difficulty finding and maintaining competitive employment, which has a significant impact on their mental health, self-esteem and quality of life. We have concentrated our vocational resources on supporting participants to be gainfully employed with Manor Personnel Deployment Inc. (M.P.D.)
It is a ‘service company’ that provides advertising flyer collation, data entry and seasonal lawn maintenance and cleaning services for businesses and individuals. M.P.D. provides work opportunities for people with ASD. The major advantage of the company is linked to their ability to make the many accommodations required to maintain people with ASD in the workplace.
There are employee incentive programs, as well as social gatherings to celebrate hard work and accomplishments. For most workers, this will be their first long-term successful job, increasing self-esteem and confidence and the earned income will add to their quality of life.
Employees of M.P.D. are involved in Woodview’s adult autism services.
