Description of Service
Community Employment Services (CES) assists people with developmental disabilities with finding employment. Job coaches provide free, on-the-job training to individuals with mental retardation. A job coach will work with the employee until the employer is satisfied with the individual's work performance. At that time, the job coach will gradually withdraw support from the worksite, a process known as "fading," enabling the employee to function at a fully independent level.
To apply for services, contact the Intake Coordinator at 570-326-3745 ext. 1239. Referrals can be made through local organizations, such as Mental Health/Intellectual Disabilities, Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, school district personnel, BLAST IU #17, community organizations, family members, and self-referrals. All referrals must meet eligiblity standards and licensing requirements.
