Disability Related Employment Services/Work Adjustment Training

This program caters to individuals who wish to gain or maintain employment.  Working side-by-side with an Employment Specialist or Job Coach, the individual receives support in resume creation, interview skills and appropriate job-related communications.

Work adjustment training occurs in a natural work setting where people with disabilities are integrated into competitive employment. TCH offers support to the employer during the individual’s employment. The goal of this program is for TCH to eventually fade out of service as the individual maintains independent employment.
