CAREER EXPLORATION AND GUIDANCE

The professional staff of the C2C program firmly believe in an individualized approach to job development services. We utilize career assessments, informational interviews, and trial work experiences to assist students in discovering which career path best suits their interests, work style, and skill set.

ACADEMIC PLANNING

As part of the integrated learning experience, C2C students are required to enroll in 50% non-DSPS courses. The C2C staff works with individual students to establish an academic plan that aligns with their employment goal. Staff members assist the student in selecting and registering for courses needed to achieve this goal and work closely with campus DSPS counselors to provide assistance in accessing authorized academic accommodations.

EDUCATIONAL COACH SUPPORT

With C2C, students work with an assigned one-on-one educational coach who provides support to navigate the campus and develop study skills and learning strategies. Students learn how to understand and utilize accommodations and access campus and community resources. By scaffolding support, the program ensures students develop essential learning and workplace skills such as effective communication, time management, organization, and social skills.

VOCATIONAL SPECIALIST SUPPORT

In year two of the program, students can begin meeting with a C2C vocational specialist to explore, prepare and begin searching for paid employment or other applicable work experiences.

WORKSITE MONITORING AND SUPPORT

Once a student becomes employed, the C2C staff monitors their progress for 90 days, practices job retention strategies, and remains available to support the student through their transition to work. The program focuses on assisting the student in developing natural supports to maximize independence in the workplace and minimize the need for on-going job coaching support.
