Teen, Young Adult Vocational Services
Many teens and young adults with disabilities struggle to land their first job and maintain steady employment. Therapy and Wellness Connection helps with vocational skills, training and job placement in Northeast Ohio.
Many of “our kids” don’t outgrow the need for additional support services once they turn 18 or leave high school. That’s why we offer tailored vocational services at Therapy and Wellness Connection.
To prepare clients for the work world, we offer assistance with a range of professional skill sets, including:
- Creating a resume
- Filling out an employment application
- Preparing for a job interview
- Requesting reasonable accommodations from employers (as required under the Americans with Disabilities Act)
- Navigating social interactions with supervisors, co-workers and customers
We partner with local higher education institutions (primarily Baldwin Wallace University) as well as local employers throughout Northeast Ohio to help ease the transition for our clients from a system of intensive support to greater independence.
Many businesses have enthusiastically embraced our facilitation of these employment arrangements and ensuring long-term success. Our clients land the opportunity to be part of a team, to contribute to carve out their own independence. Their employers gain workers who are competent, committed and contribute to team member diversity. Several area employers trust Therapy and Wellness Connection professionals as an ongoing resource and contact for regulatory compliance, employee education/awareness and possible new hires.
We teach employers how to set clear and realistic expectations, issue effective direction and offer practical tools to handle whatever complications may arise. We also help companies identify potential ADA-compliance issues and solutions, provide ongoing on-site supports to clients and help ensure everyone is happy with the employment arrangement.
