PROMOTES EMployment Project

PROMOTES stands for “Providing Realistic Opportunities to Mentor On-site Training for Employment Skills”. The purpose of PROMOTES is to provide additional supports to students, ages 16 and older with developmental disabilities, before, during, and after they have obtained paid employment in the community. This practicum focuses on the use of evidence-based practices, grounded in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), to support students in building vocational and job-related social skills that are relevant to successful integration into the workforce and community. Students in this practicum setting will individualize job training to student needs, while also providing support and supplemental instruction to business leaders in the community.
