Businesses need dependable and motivated employees. Deaf individuals need positive, supportive employers.
The Lexington Vocational Services Center, established in 1987, with programs in New York and New Jersey, has earned a national reputation for excellence by offering a comprehensive range of supported employment programs for individuals who are Deaf and the businesses that hire them. These supported employment programs include:
- Assessment of an individual’s skills and development of a supported work placement plan.
- Job Development – matching jobs to the individual’s abilities, interests, and vocational goals.
- Placement of an Employment Specialist during the first phase of employment to assist with training.
- Provision of extended services to the worker and the employer for the entire duration of employment to ensure that the relationship between employer and employee continues to be a positive one.
Employers and employment candidates may look to the Lexington Vocational Services Center as they would an employment agency, however without any fee to the employer or Deaf applicant.
Our programs provide support to both the employer and employee in a variety of ways. Whether you are a prospective employer or employee, we look forward to helping you cultivate and maintain a rewarding and productive relationship.
