Employment Services Program (serving ages 16+)
SARRC's Employment Services program is aimed at increasing competitive employment opportunities for adults (age 16+) with autism while teaching valuable work-related behaviors that might include:
- Navigating workplace culture
- Ways to advocate in the workplace
- Time management and executive functioning skills
Clients may receive a functional assessment to identify strengths and interests; support with resume and job interview preparation; and on-the-job support.
Employment Services are supervised by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and implemented by a team of highly trained clinicians. Our team will work with clients to develop individualized employment goals. Services may occur in a variety of settings such as SARRC's Beneficial Beans® Garden, internship sites within the community as well as local businesses.
Individuals who participate in SARRC's Employment Services are better equipped with the skills needed to achieve meaningful, community-based employment.
