The phases of job placement include:
- Researching potential positions that would be a good fit
- Applying for positions
- Employment maintenance
Each person needs a different level of support during each phase, and we can customize services to provide what you decide is right for you.
Before the first day of work, the team sits down to envision what independence looks like for the client at that job, then we outline the necessary supports, job coaching interventions, and benchmark goals which will help the client achieve independence at work.
Once job coaching begins, we provide continued support for the employee to master all aspects of the job which require job coach support. This also includes providing training for the business in creating a long term plan for the employee, such as by discussing natural peer-supports, scheduling, and accommodations that create a successful work environment for the employee.
After a 90 day process, we re-assess as a team to determine if additional job coaching is needed and, if so, in what areas it is needed. Job coaching is meant to fade over time, as the employee masters their job and the employer develops an inclusive work environment. We understand that some individuals may need more or less time, and we work to tailor this process to the job seeker and employer’s needs.
