Clinical Director Dr. Kent Grelling and Program Director Matt Xavier talk with Inside Pleasant Hill about NDFYA and the work we do for young adults with mild disabilities.
Recently the California campus was given the opportunity to share our mission with Inside Pleasant Hill.
Inside Pleasant Hill is a program showcasing news, people, locations, events, and organizations related to the city of Pleasant Hill, CA. All of the episodes can be viewed on Vimeo, and new episodes air on Comcast Channel 28, Astound Channel 29 and UVerse Channel 99 for local viewers. Our segment was a part of Episode 212, which was recorded on May 16, 2015 at the lovely and new Pleasant Hill Rec & Park Senior Center, and aired in June 2015.
About the Episode
During this video, Dr. Kent Grelling, licensed clinical psychologist and Clinical Director of the California campus, and Matt Xavier, one of our Program Directors, spoke with hosts Laura McCormack and Matt Rinn. They discussed what NDFYA offers for young adults and the types of students that find the most success in our program. They also talked about how the program works and the focus given to each student by every member of the staff.
An Amazing New Home
This video also gave us the opportunity to share how excited we are to have this additional campus in California. The Pleasant Hill location is especially great for those of our students who become interested in music, since there are a number of local music options available (many of which were shared on the episode!).
We look forward to sharing these amenities with our students and are pleased to be welcomed by the Pleasant Hill community. Enjoy the episode!
