Abilis works with individuals to create custom career plans that build upon their interests and skills and offer avenues toward employment in the community. There are five primary steps in the competitive employment process, which include:

  • Skill assessment
  • Skill development
  • Employment targets
  • Job placement
  • Ongoing coaching

There is no set time frame, as each individual transitions between steps at a different rate based on skills and needs. For individuals who are unable to participate in competitive employment in the community due to physical or behavioral needs, Abilis provides supported employment opportunities through its own businesses, which were designed with these individuals in mind.
