Adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, autism and traumatic brain injury are an underserved community and are in need of assistance to help them reach their full potential and develop, improve, and maintain their independence. The ADVP, or Adult Developmental Vocational Program, is available for this community to provide classes, training, and skill building to promote confidence, self-reliance, and greater independence. To qualify for the ADVP, the candidate must be 18 or older and have a diagnosis of a traumatic brain injury, autism, or an intellectual or developmental disability. Candidates should also be able to take care of their basic personal needs and possess social skills that are conducive to maintaining a safe work environment.
At Vocational Solutions of Henderson County, we offer the ADVP to adults with special needs in our community who show an interest in learning new skills to promote and maximize their independence. We will perform an assessment and interview before enrolling a new client, and if they are a good fit for our program, we will work with them to enhance existing skills and acquire new skills to help them along in their journey. We assume competence and support the capabilities of our clientele, so they can achieve their goals.
Our non-profit organization was founded in 1967, and we are internationally accredited to provide support for adults with disabilities. We offer guidance and training on the next steps to take after high school graduation and experience great success with our clients. Our mission is to help those in need succeed and to meet their goals by offering developmental therapies, personal care, and personal assistance programs to enhance quality of life and maximize independence. Please reach out to us today with any questions, to donate to our program, or to inquire about our industrial outsourcing contracts.
