Career Planning

The goal of Career Planning is to create a documented career objective and a career plan describing the steps and activities necessary to meet that objective. The career plan is developed through career exploration activities such as:

  • Job shadowing
  • Informational interviewing
  • Assessment of interests

Career Planning is facilitated in conjunction with Community Integration supports to allow the job coach to observe the individual in a work setting. This observation allows the job coach to assess skills and identify areas of development.

Career Planning is a 3-month, time-limited program.

Prevocational Services

The goal of Prevocational Services is to develop the individual’s general, non-job-task-specific skills necessary to succeed in paid employment, such as:

  • Ability to communicate effectively with future supervisors, co-workers and customers
  • Generally accepted community workplace conduct and dress
  • Ability to follow directions
  • Ability to attend to tasks
  • Potential workplace problem solving skills and strategies
  • Potential general workplace safety and mobility training
  • Volunteering to gain experience
