Programs & Services - Employment & Training

New inroads into employment and employment training are constantly in formation, but efforts to expand the population’s awareness of new developments have not been effective; this website seeks to improve such awareness. Adults with Autism continue to demonstrate natural abilities in an increasing number of specialized, appropriately-compensated work situations. Proactive and innovative approaches to training and support are required to accomplish successful continuing employment.

Careers Through Technology Create Your Own Review

Posted By: Post 21 Club on July 12, 9:34 PM

In its conception, the Careers through Technology program was originally designed for individuals with significant physical and cognitive challenges. Many adults wanted a different kind of a program and they wanted employment! We believe in those tenants still and have worked to provide services to a broader spectrum of individuals- with different learning styles and different support needs.

We continue to evolve and progress. We have learned from the individuals who attend our programs, their families and support circles and from our community business partners.
So what is it that we do?
We become your partners in skill development and career exploration. Our approach is holistic in nature and based on person centered thinking. We provide instruction and support in technology skills, travel training, money management, time management, job sampling, volunteerism, job development and job coaching.
We know that the hard skills are the foundation; however, the “soft skills” or people skills assist us to not only get the job, but keep the job. So we recognize the importance of highlighting your skills, understanding the work culture, building an effective relationship with supervisors, positive work habits and attitudes, problem solving abilities, advocacy, working well with others and understanding and responding to employer expectations and making connections with co-workers.
Our primary focus is employment, independence and community involvement.
The Careers through Technology program is funded by the Division of Developmental Disabilities and operated by Bergen County Special Services. The Careers through Technology program is located in the barrier free BCSS Adult Programs Center, on 296 E. Ridgewood Ave., Paramus NJ 07652.

    Excellent Program

    My son Matthew is a member of this program and he loves it. He is learning high end computer skills as well as social skills. It is the only program that I know of that continues to teach Post 21 members as opposed to baby sitting. They are preparing him to work and develop his skills which are many. My son is learning budgeting, robotics, internet security, advance internet searching methods. He is even reading mammograms with a 95% accuracy. I am beyond thrilled with this program. Weekly emails are provided with his progress as well as parent meetings every three months. Total transparency. What a breath of fresh air! Love it!
