About Lionheart WORKS

Lionheart WORKS is a vocational training program for young adults ages 18 and up with autism and other neurodevelopmental differences who desire a person centered program that prepares and supports them in the workforce. The goal of Lionheart WORKS is to secure sustainable employment by matching participants with their ideal work site while maximizing independence and natural supports on the job.

Participants entering the WORKS program begin with a discovery process to identify affinities, abilities, and work readiness. Vocational instruction, social thinking occupational therapeutic consultation, and self-advocacy skill building, as related to the work environment, occur in the training center and at work sites. Our program assigns trained job coaches who are specifically matched to individual participants based on their interests and needs.

Participants, family members, Lionheart WORKS staff, vocational counselors, and work site supervisors form a team to encourage participants to attain their highest level of independence and happiness.
