THE JOURNEY TO EMPLOYMENT

Graduating from high school is an important and complicated rite of passage. For students with disabilities, it can be particularly challenging. Our objective is to assist students with disabilities as they transition from school to adult life with a job in the community. By combining a student’s desire to work, a strong support team, and AtWork!’s team of Employment Consultants, we can make it happen. Transition services support all students in creating a vision of community based employment.

THE PATHWAY TO SUCCESS STARTS HERE

BY AGE 18:
We’ll assist you and your student with the processes of apply for DDA, SSI, Medicaid, guardianship, and DVR. We’ll assist with obtaining a WA State ID card for your student, then by developing a transition team who will interview employment providers and assist with determining access to transportation.
BY AGE 20:
We’ll have your student participate in community-based work experiences to create an employment goal. We’ll develop a resume and employment profile to begin job development. In job development, we’ll find your employer match and begin preparing for the job application and interviews.
BY AGE 21:
We’ll complete your student’s transition with a paid job in the community. We’ll start job training and implement on-going paid employment support. We’ll assist with benefits planning and develop an on-going career path service plan.
