Mission & Vision
Golden Locket was created to provide support to kids, teens, and young adults, in their environment and community.

The vision of Golden Locket is providing opportunities for individualized growth and success to those with disabilities and other special needs.
Services I Offer
Connect to Success
My services are aimed to meet your love ones academic, social, physical, and emotional needs by teaching & engaging in behaviors that encourage student learning. Vital skills can be taught and encouraged to self-advocate which ultimately empowers them to meet challenges that extend beyond the academic arena.
In conjunction with academic services, I am skilled at implementing existing treatment plans that reinforce communication/social skills, self-help skills, behavior management and other ongoing programs that promotes their individualized development.
I welcome and value the thoughts, ideas, and concerns of parents and caregivers. I can serve as a liaison between educators and IEP/ISP team members.
Supported Living Services
Celebrating Your Independence
Supported living provides education and training to assist individuals with developmental disabilities in living as independently as possible within their community. The services provided encourages independence, self-determination, and empowerment by promoting:
Autonomy and Learning to Reside Independently
Health and Medical Needs
Money Management and Budgeting
Social/Emotional Recreational Component
As a certified provider by the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD), I will assist individuals ages 12 to adulthood which subsidies through the state of Ohio's IO Waiver program. The Individual Options Waiver (I.O. Waiver) aids individuals with developmental disabilities who meet the waiver's eligibility requirements. Services provided through this waiver allow individuals to stay in their homes and get support.
Here For You
Respite care provides temporary relief for a primary caregiver of an individual with special needs. Respite services may be provided in a variety of settings, including the family home, adult day centers, respite centers, or residential care facilities. It can also be scheduled ahead of time on a regular basis, to give a much needed break from the demands of caregiving that allows some "you time" from constant caretaking.
**(Service is available with approved waiver from the Department of Developmental Disabilities. If you are not eligible for waivers private pay is accepted)**
