No Limits Community Resources

No Limits Community Resources

This has been a HARD year for everyone.  
We have learned what we can do, and what we can’t.  
We have spent time alone
Made new friends with the aid of Social Media
Searched for creative ways to accomplish goals we set
Mourned over loss
 Rejoice for surviving
Look forward to a time of 
HEALING
PEACE
STABILITY
with
NO LIMITS

Why is Customized Employment Important for Transition Age Youth?
Students with disabilities who have limited work experience and skills can benefit from bypassing the traditional labor market approach to employment. Through a process known as “Discovery" and informational interviews, students have an opportunity to demonstrate and uncover their skills and interests across multiple setting. With this information, teams can develop measurable post-secondary employment goals. Customized Employment capitalizes on the creativity and resources of the transition team and the community to facilitate a match between the student's skills, needs and the work environment.

Reminder!!!

Both Erie County and Lorain County have summer employment opportunities for students between the ages of 14 – 26.  Below are contacts for each counties Department of Jobs and Family Services.

Here we are at the end of another school year.  What a year it has been!  Hopefully we will be seeing things go back to some sort of normalcy.  Summer means picnics, outdoor activities, and for many students, SUMMER JOBS!

This month’s Newsletter Theme is information about employment and students with disabilities.
