Supported employment is at the core of our mission, facilitating the inclusion of individuals with significant disabilities into the national workforce. Traditionally reserved for those whose disabilities have posed severe barriers to work, this approach pairs individuals with job coaches, colleagues, business supervisors, and mentors to provide comprehensive support throughout their employment journey.
S4C takes pride in being home to one of approximately 15 Certified Brain Injury Specialist Trainers in Iowa. This specialized training equips us to serve a frequently misunderstood segment of the disability community. Individuals who’ve experienced brain injuries or are affiliated with other Children & Families of Iowa programs receive preferential placement on our waitlist.
Customized Discovery and Employment
Our offerings extend to a tailored service designed for individuals receiving services from Iowa Vocational Rehabilitation Services (IVRS). Customized Discovery understands that traditional assessments or even seasoned professionals’ observations don’t always predict an individual’s full potential. By engaging with individuals in their homes, we uncover their skills, interests, capacities, and motivations. This serves as the foundation for identifying vocational themes that drive personalized job development. Our goal is to help you find the most fitting community-based employment based on a deep understanding of your unique strengths.
