The job coach is a critical link between the school
and employment community and plays a pivotal role in the
student’s transition into the world of work.
Students with special needs, need a
vast opportunity to succeed in adult life. The
Individuals with special needs requires transition to
adulthood, including employment, starting at least by
age 16, as part of Individualized Education Plan.
At Cerebral Palsy Foundation Centre,
we have improved our job coaching system to enable all
our young people to become productive and responsible
citizens, who can take their place in the world with
confidence and pride when employed.
We ensure they are equipped with the
skills, knowledge, attitudes and values to thrive in the
modern world, while being confident and proud of their
rich cultural heritage.
We help our students and their
families think about their life after school and
identify long-range goals future and consider what they
want to do after school;

Students with different levels of
disability have different needs.
For example, it would be appropriate
and meaningful for a student to learn to sort laundry;
wipe and arrange utensils after washing; however it
would be a meaningless activity for a student to spend
time sorting colored pegs.
Sorting colored pegs does not provide
a useful experience or result in usable information.
For cerebral Palsy Foundation Centre
instruction in the actual environment is necessary.
