Vocational rehabilitation is a process which enables persons with functional, psychological, developmental, cognitive, and emotional disabilities or impairments or health disabilities to overcome barriers to accessing, maintaining, or returning to employment or other useful occupation. The problem many autistic people face when dealing with vocational rehabilitation agencies is one of communication. Most corporate clinics aren't equiped or staffed to manage the unique sensory and communication needs of autistic people. This is where we come in.
Our Vocational services are organized as a community rehabilitation program as defined by the California Dept. of Rehabilitation. But, we have chosen to not register with the state due to the overwhelming compliance costs of working with the DOR. We are able to provide all necessary services, including the issuing of Schedule A letters, we just aren't able to request or receive monies from the state. Our staff can provide Assessment Services, Training Services, Job Related Services, and Support Services. Our services are funded entirely by private donations, and are offered free of charge for those in need.
