A job coach allows for an Employer to hire an individual with a disability who may need individualized training or additional supports on the job that the Employer is not able to provide. The job coach communicates with the Employers, co-workers and the Placement Specialist who helped the individual find the job to provide and receive feedback on the client’s performance at work. The job coach also completes reports, detailing work activities and issues that may occur during the job coaching shift.
