Have you ever wondered what a job coach is?  This webcast will provide information on the role of a job coach and how they can assist with your hiring and business needs.  Job coaches work with individuals with disabilities to obtain and maintain long-term employment.  They are also a resource for training new employees and educating managers and co-workers on disability awareness.

Key words:

VR - Vocational Rehabilitation

DARS - Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services.  This is Virginia's VR agency who refers consumers for services.

ASD - Autism Spectrum Disorder.  A developmental disorder that can affect behavior and communication.  An Autism Spectrum Disorder is just that - a disorder.  It is not a disease or illness.
