EMPLOYMENT SERVICES

The League uses person-centered planning to assist each of our participants in establishing, preparing for, and achieving their career goals.


We provide services to youth and adults with all types of disabilities, ranging from mild to significant, with particular expertise in the following areas:

  • Autism

  • Deaf & Hard of Hearing

  • Intellectual Disabilities

  • Physical Disabilities

  • Transitioning Youth

  • Emotional & Behavioral Disabilities

Specific Services Offered Include:

 

Career Assessment:

Assists individuals in identifying vocational interests, aptitudes, skills, and needs, through an interactive 2-3 day evaluation process conducted by a vocational evaluator.

Employee Development Services & Work Adjustment Training:

Provides individuals with paid community-based “internship” experiences, where they receive mentoring and training from an on-site supervisor, in addition to support and job coaching from The League’s Training Specialist. 

Job Development & Job Placement:

Our team of dynamic Employment Specialists provide one-on-one customized job development services to assist individuals in becoming competitively employed in jobs that match their unique talents, preferences, and needs. 

Job Coaching

Assists individuals in successfully maintaining employment. Job Coaches provide on and off-site support, and can help participants adjust to newly-obtained jobs, learn and master job responsibilities, and fully integrate into the workplace. 

Supported Employment, Community Development Service, and Employment Customization and Discovery:

DDA-funded participants can access an array of employment services, customized to meet their particular needs and desires.  Our team of Career Discovery Specialists work with participants in small groups to explore careers, discover talents and passions through job site visits and volunteerism, attend college courses, and develop effective workplace behaviors and skills.  Our team of Supported Employment staff then work one-on-one with participants to identify and/or develop a customized job that matches their skills and interests, while ensuring that necessary accommodations and supports are put in place for success. Participants then receive ongoing job coaching and support, as appropriate.

 

The League’s Employment Services are funded through the Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA) and the Division of Rehabilitation Services (DORS).  DDA’s New Directions Waiver, LISS funds, and Private Pay are also accepted.
