Michelle Carlucci imagines opening a restaurant that employs young adults like her 15-year-old son, Harry.
When he leaves Franklin High School at age 22, Harry, a little person with autism, will lose its blanket of services. But, even as Carlucci knows her son will always have her around for support, she worries about how Harry's life might turn out after, suddenly, his options have dwindled; she shares this deep-seated concern with other parents of people with developmental disorders. Refusing to wait to find out, Carlucci has jumped for her dream. "It's a big dream," she said last week, "and we are definitely making it happen." In fact, Carlucci has already picked a name: Today's Special. The restaurant, she hopes, will provide crucial job opportunities for young adults with special needs amid an engaging, vital social environment. "It's important for a lot of reasons," she said. "I feel like young adults with special needs really live a separate life from other young people, and I would really like to blur the lines between them." She added, "Once they leave school ... the opportunities really go away - social opportunities and employment opportunities. We are looking to give them a place to go and work. Not everybody is going to want that social type of job, but some do..." Today's Special, open only for lunch, will offer dishes with fresh ingredients from local farms and businesses, Carlucci said. "It's just as important for able-bodied people to come to the restaurant and get healthy, organic food," she said. "We will get a lot of it from places that employ people with special needs." In the evenings, Carlucci, who works at the Rome Restaurant, said she wants to host workshops on food service for prospective employees so they can learn about the industry. Eventually, she plans to work with the Horace Mann Educational Associates, a nonprofit organization that trains men and woman with development disabilities, then gives them a path to independence. Carlucci is looking at possible locations for the restaurant and, along with her boyfriend, Ted Stefan, is trying to collect enough funds to get up and running. Knowing what it has done for her family so, Carlucci expects the town to embrace Today's Special. "The community has been outstanding in their support and educational opportunities for Harry," she said.
