2018 Direct Support Professional Leadership Award Winner: Adam Rideout-Arkell

Adam Rideout-Arkell has been a valued member of the CL Windsor  team for 13 years. He is also a member of the Core Competency Implementation Committee, a team of Direct Support Professional who are using their creativity to bring Core Competencies alive in the agency in new and exciting ways. After transferring to an area where various daytime opportunities are provided, Adam saw the untapped potential of a number of people we support and developed a proposal to start a content creation studio.  Adam discovered that one person in particular, Bob, is a great singer.  Adam was instrumental in helping Bob set up an appropriate platform on YouTube for the classic country karaoke style performances Bob loves, under the name of “Country Bob”.  Adam took a similar approach with a young lady who typically struggles with many issues.  Adam recognized her strengths though in her fashion/makeup sense, her incredible sense of humour and her rather pointed observations around life with a disability and has beautifully captured them in her regular YouTube releases.
