Career Employment Services helps people with disabilities who are
having problems finding and keeping a job. C.E.S. provides an effective,
long-term solution for workers with disabilities. The program begins
by matching a worker to a job, and continues to support the worker
while he or she is on the job.
COMMUNITY WORK ASSESSMENT
Career Employment Services arranges an appropriate short-term work
experience in the community to determine the person's vocational
skills and training needs related to employment. The worker is able
to try jobs in which he or she might be interested.
CES Job Developers assist individuals to assess their vocational
skills and desires, and they work with area employers to identify
community-based employment opportunities. CES compares each employer's
job requirements to the skill levels of eligible individuals to
ensure appropriate job matches.
After a job match is made, a Job Coach provides personal instruction
to the new worker until he or she meets the employer's expectations.
The Job Coach gradually reduces this support as the worker becomes
more independent at the job.
Once job coaching is complete, a Job Retention Specialist helps
the worker stay at the job. Support is given to both the employee
and the employer to be sure that both are satisfied with all aspects
Toward the end of their education, employed students, their families
and employers are introduced to adult services related to employment.
The students receive job development and coaching services on the
job as part of the school program. Ideally, these jobs will become
permanent upon graduation. The Job Retention Specialist provides
support and guidance for the students, employers and families both
during and after the school-to-work transition.
