We help our clients Find, Get & Keep a Job
The Unicorn Supported Employment & Job Coaching Program helps match adults with IDD (intellectual developmental disabilities) with employers who are eager to have them on their team.
Our job coaches work one-on-one with each individual to determine his/her interests and the type of work that is best for them. Often employers are contacted to help carve out various tasks that could be done on a part-time basis.
Once a job has been found, job coaches teach the individual the specific skills they will need to be successful at their job.
In order to keep a job, Unicorn provides ongoing employer support. The Not-So-Secret to our Success? Job Coaches!
- Job coaches visit the employee and his/her supervisor frequently
- Job coaches will step in and provide additional training and support when there is change:
- New supervisor
- New task assignments
- Conflict resolution
- We also advocate and celebrate the employee's success!
- Help them train for possible promotions
- Advocate for raises
- Identify safety and care issues
Let's get started!
