Many thanks to blog contributor Daniel M., a Special Tree client who shared a mock interview he did with a staff member at Troy Neuro Skills Center. According to Daniel's Recreational Therapist Grace DeMuch, the interviews are designed for the purpose of listening for "free information" within a person's response to come up with additional questions to keep a back and forth dialogue going with the interviewee. Nice work, Daniel!
