Job coaching services are provided by a staff member who works with the new employee and the employer to develop clear expectations of tasks to be performed. These tasks are taught to the new employee by using methods that best meet his/her learning style. We essentially start the new job right along with the new employee.
Once the new employee understands and is comfortable performing his/her work tasks, the staff member fades into services called follow-along supports. A staff member checks in with the employee and employer to ensure continued success and to address any potential pitfalls that could lead to the loss of employment. Follow-along services are typically provided twice a month.
