Transition Services

Job Placement, Job Coaching, Supported Employment, Work Readiness Training, and Pre-employment Training offered to clients of the Texas Workforce Solutions – Vocational Rehabilitation Services program. Persons receiving these services may have any disability and must be over 17 years old for Supported Employment Services and Work Readiness Training, and between 14 and 22 years old for Pre-Employment Training.

Job Placement – Assistance in developing and carrying out a job search plan. We help you choose a job, develop a resume, submit applications, prepare for job interviews, and begin your job.

Job Coaching – After you begin working, our staff will go to your job with you to help you learn your job and become a part of the team. We will come to your job on a schedule we set together. Over time, we will adjust the schedule and come to the job fewer times per week/month until you can do your job independently.

Supported Employment – A system of services that lead to a good job. It begins with a comprehensive assessment to identify your strengths and preferences regarding jobs. We then develop a plan to address whatever barriers stand in the way of success on the job, and work that plan with you until you find the right job. When you begin working, we will be there to help you learn your job and adjust to the routine of your new work environment.

Work Readiness Training – A classroom-based training program designed to help you learn the “soft” skills you will need to be successful at work. In addition to learning to interact in a positive manner with your coworkers and boss, you will learn financial planning and budgeting. Classes are small, with no more than six students per teacher.

Pre-employment Training – A two week day camp where you will decide upon a vocational field, learn about your rights and responsibilities as an adult, develop a resume, practice job interviewing, and spend two days gaining valuable work experience.
