This program concentrates on developing vocational and work-readiness skills for adults with limitations. Work Development provides assessment and training in vocational skills, work habits, physical stamina, peer relations, ability to follow instructions, supervisory relationships, communications, socialization, and other skills important to successful job placement.
The Work Development program serves adults 18 years or older who have developmental disabilities and related handicapping conditions. These include, but are not limited to, intellectual disabilities, cerebral palsy, physical disabilities, hearing or sight impairments, and learning disabilities.
The Work Development staff is composed of professionals in fields of disabilities and vocational training. The program emphasizes skills and experiences necessary for job placement in competitive positions in the community.
Referrals are received through the Arkansas State Rehabilitation Services office, Division of Disabilities Services, the court system, and the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) as well as friends, families, advocates, public schools, and individuals who may request services for themselves.
