Community Participation Supports
MCAR, Inc’s Community Participation Supports program is intended to maximize
opportunities for individuals to have access to the benefits of being integrated into their communities. This
program increases an individual’s potential to achieve community employment by providing both facility based
trainings and exploration into the community.
We offer a unique curriculum — the Practical Assessment
Exploration System (PAES) —developed specifically for people with different capabilities and skill levels. We
start with a complete vocational assessment. We explore an individual’s interests and identify his skill levels. We
then match his interests and skill levels to appropriate jobs in the workforce. In the assessment process, we
determine how he learns and adapt our instruction methods to suit his needs. Our complete assessment, on-site
training, and supervision make certain an individual has what it takes to succeed in the workplace.

Students who are transitioning from high school to life after graduation need guidance and encouragement,
direction and support. At MCAR, we work with schools, students, and families to help make a student's move from
school to life in the community as an adult as easy and as smooth as possible.
MCAR's transitioning program shows students how to develop goals, make informed decisions, solve problems, and
advocate for themselves. They participate in outcome-oriented activities that result in greater confidence,
self-esteem, and independence. Many transitioning students use the PAES curriculum to gain work skills.
