About Attain

Attainment Company is an independent, family owned business based in Verona, Wisconsin. Since 1979 Attainment Company has been dedicated to helping people with cognitive disabilities succeed at school, work and life. Don Bastian, founder and CEO, created Attainment's first product when he was a program coordinator at the Rock County Rehabilitation Services (now called Kandu Industries) in Beloit, Wisconsin. The Work Skill Development Program, which used a task analysis approach to teach work behaviors to young adults with disabilities, is the foundation for our present Work Activity Packages. Attainment Company has for many years, advocated supported employment as a community-based alternative to sheltered employment for adults with significant disabilities. Here, Don Bastian, CEO, chats with three long-time supported employees. Larry (center) has been with Attainment for 25 years, Mike (far left)for 14 years, and Steve (second from right) for 10 years. Lindsay Kinney is their supervisor. Soon after Attainment's inception, we began publishing functional life skill curricula. A picture-based cooking program called Look n' Cook was soon followed by Illustrated Shopping Cards, Looking Good, Keeping House, Stepping Out, and Plan Your Day. These unique programs were the first to combine picture cueing, story-based instructional video and structured lesson plans. They have all been updated and are still popular today. Times change and so does Attainment. We created our first assistive technology device and instructional software in 1993. The Pocket Talker was known for its easy use, durability and value. These qualities are still inherent in the contemporary GoTalk line. The newest version of our first software program, Dollars and Cents, anchors the Attainment Workstation, an all-in-one touch screen computer preloaded with 32 Attainment programs to teach math, literacy, life and work skills. In 2001 Attainment launched the IEP Resources publishing brand. Its premier publication, Writing Measurable IEP Goals and Objectives, by Barbara Bateman, has sold over 60,000 copies. IEP Resources is now a leading publisher focusing on critical issues in special education. In 2006, Attainment established a growing older adult product line. Award-winners include Aerobics of the Mind, Mind Your Mind and the DVDs , What Every Caregiver Needs to Know About Alzheimer's Disease and Straight Talk About Dementia. In 2007, Attainment Company, in collaboration with the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, published the ground-breaking Early Literacy Skill Builders (ELSB). ELSB is the only scientifically-based reading program for children with significant developmental disabilities, including autism. So what's coming next? All kinds of good stuff!
