Vocational Supports MPD

What is Manor Personnel Deployment (MPD)?

The importance of work for one’s general well-being 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 autism spectrum disorder (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 (MPD).

MPD is a ‘service company’ that provides seasonal lawn maintenance, cleaning services for businesses and individuals, and data entry. MPD 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 MPD are involved in Woodview’s adult autism services.
