At Vocational Solutions of Henderson County, we provide customized employment training programs for adults with disabilities that help build essential vocational and life skills. Our goal is to empower disabled individuals to overcome obstacles and prepare for success in the workforce. We serve learners throughout Henderson County, matching each person with training tailored to their needs and goals.

How Training Programs Help Adults with Disabilities Build Skills

The training we offer focuses on developing workplace competencies through firsthand education. This includes:

  • Job-specific skills. We work with adults with disabilities to build technical skills related to their vocational interests, whether in food service, janitorial work, warehouse roles, clerical positions, or something else. We also offer pre-vocational training to adults with disabilities to prepare them for being part of a workplace. Every person undergoes a comprehensive vocational evaluation to determine program placement.
  • People Skills. Equally important is developing soft skills like communication, teamwork, critical thinking, and adaptability. We use group projects and exercises to improve social abilities.
  • Life Competencies. Our programs also teach basic life skills that translate to independence and confidence in work settings, including cooking, financial literacy, community access, health, and wellness education.
