The Program for Successful Employment (PSE)


The Program for Successful Employment (PSE) is a two-year vocational training program for adults with autism and/or other intellectual disabilities. 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. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Upon acceptance into PSE, all students are on a probationary status until the successful completion of one semester. 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.  Application deadlines are May 1 (fall) and October 1 (spring).
