In our society, working is one of the most fundamental functions in a person’s life. For the majority of us, it is the means of financial stability, self-sufficiency, professional growth, and development. Yet, for people with disabilities, employment has not always been a central part of their lives. We are dedicated to providing supported employment through our Community Based Instruction Program to help disabled students find competitive work in integrated work settings, or employment in integrated work settings where students can build upon their strengths.
SCSSSD’s Transitional Career Program is implementing the development of career paths that includes future career planning, skills building, and ongoing career exploration, which provide our students with the progression from classroom to entry-level positions.
What is CBI? Essentially, Community based Instruction means that students are able to be exposed to career opportunities, engage in obtaining the necessary skills to perform job tasks, and to work toward the pursuit of employment in their community settings while earning wages that are least equivalent to workers in the same or similar positions.
