Employment Services

The Price Center's Employment Services program offers a comprehensive range of pre-employment assessment, training and job placement services for adult job-seekers with diverse abilities and career goals. Each client is referred to The Price Center by a state agency, another service provider or by his or her family. Based upon an initial evaluation and skills assessment, a client may be placed in a longer term support program or, if capable of moving into jobs within the community, placed in a short-term program with higher level training and job coaching. The Price Center enhanced its Employment Services with Work$mart, a job placement service conducted in partnership with local businesses. Clients are placed and supported in jobs that best meet their individual interests and skills. Clients who participate in Work$mart receive career planning, job-targeted education and training, placement services and on-going support from The Price Center staff.

Adults

ASCENT (Advocacy, Social Skills, Career Exploration, Networking and Transitions) is an after-school program serving teens and young adults from ages 16-22. ASCENT helps young participants transition to independent living and post-secondary education and employment. Young people enrolled in ASCENT meet up to four afternoons each week to work on social skills and concrete life skills, such as cooking, self-care, shopping and personal finance that prepare them to be more independent in their lives. Each instructional module is supported by immersive community experiences that allow young adults to practice specific life skills in community settings. Practice in community life settings, opportunities for career exploration and ongoing feedback and support from committed mentors and peers allow youth in the ASCENT program to form friendships that enhance their social and professional competencies.

The Intensive Day Habilitation Program offers an array of therapeutic services for individuals with significant disabilities and developmental delays. People served by this specialized program are predominantly non-verbal and require extensive communication support. Non-ambulatory individuals receive a range of therapies and services from developmental disabilities professionals. The people served in this program have the highest degree of physical, mental and cognitive disabilities and so they represent the greatest challenge to The Price Center's vision of helping each individual achieve the greatest level of independence possible. The clinical services provided include physical and speech therapy, occupational therapy and nursing. Each individual's Intensive Day Habilitation Service Plan (DHSP) focuses on communication development, social and community engagement, gross motor development, assistive technology and use of adaptive equipment.

Population(s) Served

The Day Habilitation program helps individuals with moderate to intensive cognitive disabilities as well as significant physical impairments strive for--and achieve--their fullest potential through a range of therapeutic, clinical and social services. A medically-based program that delivers attentive and expert clinical care tailored to each client's unique needs, Day Habilitation clinical services include nursing care, occupational and physical therapy, speech therapy, and behavioral intervention. The program supports community integration, independent living and social learning. Clients work to develop the skills they need to communicate, interact socially, and become more self-reliant.

Population(s) Served

Residential programs at The Price Center offer a continuum of support services to disabled adults in the Metrowest of Boston. Services range from total care for the profoundly disabled to group homes that foster independent community-based living for individuals capable of relatively high levels of self-sufficiency.
