Department Mission Statement:   "Provide people with disabilities the training, support and opportunity they need for successful employment outcomes."

The Easterseals Western and Central Pennsylvania Pre-Vocational Development Department is a premier provider of services specifically designed to provide a safe and encouraging environment for its participants.  The Department works closely with each individual and their interdisciplinary team to match their needs, preferences, abilities and interests with appropriate job training. 

The admission, provision of services and referrals of clients, patients, residents and/or students will be made without regard to race, color, religious creed, disability, ancestry, national origin, age or sex.

Pre-Vocational Evaluation Services - The Vocational Specialists work as a part of the individual's interdisciplinary team that determines the level of support they need to achieve their goals.  This process results in recommendations and an individualized plan for achieving facility-based or competitive employment in the community.

Employment Planning Services - Personal hygiene, appropriate attire, workplace norms and employer expectations are among the many work-related competencies individuals are instructed in.  Skill enhancement, travel training, work ethics and other techniques are also stressed to assure the successful job placement of the individual.
