Individual Placement

The goal of the Individual Placement program is to place individuals with intellectual disabilities in competitive jobs within local business and industries. Participants are on the payroll of the employer and earn competitive wages. A trained job coach provides training until the individual meets the job criteria and then provides ongoing follow-up supports to the individual and the employer for as long as such services are required. Most employers quickly realize these workers are loyal, reliable and talented individuals that become essential to their team.

Waterbury Arc, in conjunction with the Connecticut Department of Social Services, is seeking local agencies and businesses to promote, explore, develop and implement career and volunteer opportunities for individuals we support through:

  • Company tours
  • Job shadowing
  • Internships
  • Volunteering
  • Community networking
