Pattie is a 27 year old woman who lives in Sacramento. During the first four years of attending Short Center South she had a very difficult time following directions and not causing physical fights with others. This year, she has demonstrated an excellent overall adjustment to the art program by not exhibiting any serious maladaptive behaviors toward other individuals. She did have a severe history of aggressive verbal behavior toward others. She is currently assisting others in controlling their tempers and articulating to them to exhibit more appropriate socialization skills. She is now a part-time office assistant providing excellent employment services. Her program staff recognize her for her tremendous effort and improvements!
