Communication Services

Connections_in_ohio_communication_servicesConnections in Ohio supports individuals who communicate in non-traditional ways. Over the years, we have successfully assisted those who communicate with touch talkers, communication boards, sign language and bi-lingual individuals. We believe that all people, regardless of their expressive language skills, communicate effectively in non-verbal ways. Our staff is trained to observe all individuals’ non-verbal language. This helps us detect their emotions and temperament and avoid frustration caused by an inability to communicate effectively.

Each individual we support has an ISP that identifies special language considerations, and our training is tailored to meet these unique needs. Providing a structured environment, a typical daily routine, and consistency in staff facilitates positive outcomes as well. Through exposure to the community and by engaging in activities that they enjoy, the individuals we support soon become more capable of interacting with others.

The Connections in Ohio Difference

During the last 15 years, we’ve developed service offerings that ensure quality and consistency in the care we provide. We have a full-time clinical department to assist and monitor the health and medical needs of all the individuals we serve. Our two on-staff registered nurses (RN) provide certified nursing support when needed. We also employ an expert staff with specialized training in intense behavioral programming, which ensures the safety of all individuals involved.

Our directors implement regular on-site training, delivering feedback regarding service provision and health and safety oversight. Our resource department provides management training, specialized training, and systems oversight to all our teams, including:

  • Bi-weekly new employee orientation training
  • Ongoing training for our direct support staff
  • In-house certified CPI trainers

In addition, our business department works to perform background screening and secure all required documentation of new employees. This screening includes national background checks, nursing and abuser registry checks, motor vehicle checks and general reference checks.
