“Prevocational Services provide one-to-one learning and group experiences to further develop an individual’s general, non-job task specific skills which are needed to succeed in paid employment in competitive, integrated community settings. Services are expected to occur over a defined period of time with specific and measurable outcomes to be achieved, as determined by an individualized assessed need through an ongoing person-centered planning process. Services are intended to develop and teach general skills that lead to competitive and integrated employment including, but not limited to:

  • ability to communicate effectively with supervisors, co-workers and customers;
  • generally accepted community workplace conduct and dress;
  • ability to follow directions;
  • ability to attend to tasks;
