Program Description

The PVT program (PVT) provides a weekly pre-vocational training program for teens and young adults with ASD and other diagnoses which result in social cognitive deficits. Participants engage in 6 weeks of shared exploration, discussion, and skill development followed by 8 weeks of intern experience in our company owned and staffed social skills or summer Say N’ Play speech camp.

During the 14 weeks, participants are exposed to three clusters of skills that are critical for promoting independence and fulfilling lives; daily living, social and vocational skills. This is accomplished through 2 hours of job club meetings for weeks 1-6 and 1 hour sessions for weeks 7-14 during the intern experience. Groups are limited to a maximum of 10 participants for each 14 week session. Staff to participant ratio is 1:5.

Our center realizes the direct relationship between job skills and appropriate workplace social interaction. The PVT program approaches job training with an emphasis on social skills needed for success in the workplace. We are pleased to announce that we will hire one of our pre-vocational participants to work part time in our center while he attends West Los Angeles College. He has expressed an interest in law enforcement.
