Services

Supported employment is a unique employment service for individuals with disabilities who require ongoing support services to succeed in competitive employment. The Learning Academy Employment Services helps clients become employed in their community by using services such as consultation and follow-up to promote employment stability.

Employment services assist individuals in preparing for, securing, maintaining, or retaining employment, and to assure satisfaction of the employer and individual. Services could include employer contacts, job analysis and modifications, support in job seeking and retention skills, job development and follow-up activities until job stabilization occurs.

On-the-job trainingis a service that matches individuals with employers who are willing to take on a worker and train them in a specific job. The Division of Vocational Rehabilitation will provide the employer reimbursement for wages while the worker is learning the job with the goal of the employer hiring the person after he or she masters the job.

Certified Business Technical Assistance Consultation: The Learning Academy Employment Services is certified by DVR to provide customized self-employment services.   Exploring self-employment opportunities is increasing for individuals with autism spectrum disorders.  Self-employment or small business ownership may be the right path for some people, so completing an in-depth “discovery” process is extremely vital to know if this is a good option.  If you think self-employment may be a good fit for you, please discuss the possibility with your VR Counselor.
