We serve disabled adults who are seeking meaningful, ongoing employment.
At Vocational Solutions of Henderson County, our adult development vocational training program serves the needs of adults with development disabilities who have recognized barriers to employment. To enroll in our program, you must have a diagnosis of intellectual/development disability, autism, or traumatic brain injury. You must also be at least 18 years of age, express an interest in working, and be able to take care of your basic needs.
The services we provide through our vocational training program include but are not limited to:
- Pre-vocational skills training
- Social skills training
- Independent living skills
- Community integration
- Compensatory education classes
Every individual interested in our vocational training program starts by undergoing a comprehensive vocational evaluation. During this process, we assess the participant’s physical, mental, emotional, and social abilities, as well as their limitations and work tolerances, to assess their current and future employment potential. The main purpose of this process is to create a vocational profile that impacts and informs future employment-related decisions.
We contract through the NC Division of Vocational Rehabilitation to provide assistance for disabled individuals who require intensive training and long-term support to obtain and maintain employment. We also partner with local businesses in Mills River, North Carolina to establish outsourcing labor contracts to provide employment opportunities for our program participants and to help businesses find a valuable, quality source of labor.
