Pre-Employment Transition Services for Students with Disabilities
Students Ages 14-21 with IEP/504 (Required)
Pre-ETS is a program designed to fulfill the needs of individuals with disabilities to independently integrate into their community's workforce. The program provides individuals with disabilities the tools needed to be a successful working member of society. These tools may include personal and professional skill development, communication, social expectations, preparedness, etc. Other program benefits might entail the following:
* Provides individuals with disabilities a sense of purpose and greater self-confidence.
*Gives special educators and their students a break from their ordinary routines.
*Gives a member of the community, with or without a disability, the chance to be a mentor, leader, and earn a minimal wage.
*Addresses the stigmas some in society may have about individuals with disabilities being a part of the workforce.
RRCI is contracted to provide “Workplace Readiness Training” and “Training on Self-Advocacy”.
