The Program for Successful Employment (PSE) is a two-year vocational training program for adults with autism and/or other cognitive differences. The program combines academic and job skills training with externship opportunities in regional businesses. Each group that starts will stay together as a cohort. Each cohort will occupy a time slot during the hours of 9 a.m. 3 pm., Monday through Thursday.
Upon acceptance into PSE, all students are on a probationary status throughout the program. Students will be evaluated not only as a student, but also as a prospective employee. Classroom and jobsite experiences should be considered as a “long-term interview.” Upon completion of PSE requirements, graduates will receive a PSE Certificate of Employability with a specific concentration based on their career goals.
Classes are offered during the fall and spring semesters. Applications for Spring 2024 are now open. The Fall 2023 application has been closed due to the large number of applications already received and limited enrollment space.
