WORK OPPORTUNITY CENTER (WOC)

Services for Individuals

WOC offers a wide variety of opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

 

Vocational Evaluations
This service provides diagnostic services to individuals with intellectual and  developmental disabilities, exploring their vocational interests and abilities. A written report is generated by the Work Evaluator, which highlights areas of strengths as well as those areas that may need additional training. Community job samplings are conducted in this service.

Areas of concern that are identified in the vocational evaluation are addressed through counseling, vocational training as well as additional job samplings.
