At the Sherlock Center, we encourage people with disabilities to dream, to try and to succeed. Work provides opportunities for personal growth, self-sufficiency, and an improved quality of life. To succeed, people with disabilities need information, resources and competent support systems.

The Sherlock Center offers several comprehensive training programs specifically for direct support professionals, managers, job developers, and educators supporting individuals with disabilities to become meaningfully employed. Individualized technical assistance is also available by request in the following areas:

· Person Centered Career Planning
· Assessment Strategies
· Job Development & Placement
· Job Support
· Community Resources
· Systems Change & Program Development
