Job coach services are designed to support students to become independent workers. Job coaches provide short-term one-to-one training, supervision and support for students at non-paid and paid work sites, until the student can perform the requirements of the job independently.
When the student and employer are ready for the student to work independently, the team will develop a fading plan for the student with the goal of eliminating job coaching support so the student is working independently. When a student is 100% independent, the Job Developer will provide Direct Supervision Service (monthly check in with employer).
Typically, job coaching supports are faded away after a maximum of 6 months. If additional support is needed, job coaching supports will be reinstated for approximately 30 days.
