Meet Louis, one of Forrest Personnel’s NDIS participants.
With the support of the Forrest Personnel’s NDIS Team Louis has been exploring what is meaningful to him. Participating in work experience at Battery All Types, Bunbury, Louis has built confidence within the world of work while gaining valuable skills.
Louis thrives in environments where he has the opportunity to participant in a range of activities and during his time with Battery All Types it has been important to Louis and his team that he develop exposure to a range of duties. Routine is something that is very important to Louis, and this is reflected in his duties, where he has come to know the days of the week by the tasks he completes. Louis shared that one of his proudest moments was when Tony presented him with his ‘official’ Battery All Types shirt.
Louis’ mum, Georgia said. “Louis loves his ‘job’ at Battery All Types. He is very proud to be working like the rest of us in the family. Tony is so accommodating to him, which is really lovely, and I am so thankful that he has provided Louis with this opportunity to feel just like everyone else. His confidence has increased so much.
Louis enjoys going to work. He comes home and tells me about his day and seems very happy within himself for the tasks he undertakes while he is there. I always know when it’s the “Busso Order” day as he makes a point of letting me know each Wednesday.
Thank you all for everything you do for my boy.”
With the support of those around him Louis continues to build his independence and is gaining great sense of accomplishment and belonging within his team.
