Job Coaching is a community based program providing vocational services and opportunities to help transition-age students prepare for their future. The program offers short-term experiential job exploration in a variety of situations with job coach support. These experiences are designed to provide real life work demands in an actual employment setting. Students participate in job training in an area of interest and aptitude with the goal to work independently in competitive employment after graduation. This program is also designed for students who need a supportive experience rather than competitive employment.
Job coaches provide students with on the job individualized coaching in real time for issues that may include, but are not limited to: physical boundaries, appropriate touch, social appropriateness, perseverance, self-direction, taking initiative, authority versus respect, and personal relationships. Peer feedback is also provided in the form of an "appearance check".
On-going student evaluations occur monthly with job coaches and the students' supervising teachers. Job coaches deliver official progress reviews during IEP meetings for students, parents and school district representatives.
