Maybe many people think it is difficult to be a trainer for people with intellectual disabilities. In fact, it is not as difficult as you think. We just need to find the most accessible way for them to work by adjusting the work process, designing tools or fixtures; these measures will support people with disabilities to masterwork skills and complete tasks easier.
When we have these processes and tools ready, through continuous training and good working habits, we can see their growth; not only that they can do the work, people with disabilities can do with excellent quality.
