Providing opportunities for students with disabilities.
Individualized program plans are designed and tailored to meeting the transition service needs of students with disabilities, ages 14-21. In partnership with the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR), The Arc of Dauphin County collaborates with school districts, community partners, and local businesses who support an inclusive workplace by providing opportunities for students with disabilities.
Any student or parent wishing to receive these services must go through OVR first. Then that is sent to our coordinators here at The Arc of Dauphin County to begin program services.
We use a person-centered training approach to help each student discover things they are passionate about then translate that over into a potential career. Knowing that some accommodations may need to be made, we try to do as much training for the job before going into the workplace, so the day of work is as smooth as possible.
