Service Providers

Service providers can work confidently with their clients to deepen the Virtual Job Coach learning experience using the extra tools it provides. The Virtual Job Coach can be used one-on-one with clients or in a blended instructional model where groups of learners interact with the Virtual Job Coach independently, supplemented by periodic small-group instruction delivered by an instructor.

Why it Works

  • Designed by people with disabilities, for people with disabilities.
  • Research-based, research-validated approach and content.
  • Incremental instruction illustrating skills and strategies step by step.
  • Video models, graphics, and audio playback on every screen to support audio-visual learners.
  • Clutter-free workspace minimizes distractions and supports sensory needs.
  • Partner Support Guides and comprehensive Instructor Guides help service providers deepen learners’ understanding and provide service providers with flexible implementation options.

How it Works

  • In a one-on-one model, the learner works at his/her own pace, completing each module and unit step-by-step or skipping around to focus on what’s most important. The service provider uses Partner Support Guides in English and Spanish to stimulate meaningful discussion, practice concepts using role plays, or complete real-world explorations.
  • In a blended model, with groups of learners, the service provider acts as an instructor, making and monitoring assignments online. Learners complete instruction independently, then regroup to complete the more comprehensive activities included in the Instructor Guides.
