Connections’ Employment Services program is designed to help people develop job goals and take steps toward reaching them. We assess accommodation needs, education, work skills, and work history. Then we work with individuals to develop a plan based on abilities as well as employer needs.
Some people decide to obtain a volunteer position to ease into the work world and gain experience while others may decide to obtain training in a new field. Others want help with the application process. We can provide support in any of these areas, then assist with interview preparation, accommodation needs, and job coaching.
Other areas we can assist you with include the following:
- Situational assessments
- >Personal adjustment training
- Tutorial Services
- Access to computers, typing tutorials, and opportunities to learn software
- Sign Language Interpreting
Ticket to Work
Connections is an Employment Network Provider for the Ticket to Work Program through Social Security. This program is for individuals currently receiving SSI or SSDI who are interested in working and gradually becoming self-supporting and independent. As an Employment Network Provider, we can explain the Ticket to Work Program and provide guidance in determining if the program is appropriate for each individual.
