Job Programs

Food for Good Thought offers vocational and employment services to individuals on the autism spectrum primarily through The Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation (BVR) or the Medicaid Waiver.

Services can be on-site in our Clintonville facility or off-site in the community.

Generally, we create a vocational training and/or employment experience that is specific to the individual.

Our services are highly customized and tailored to fit the specific needs of the person served. These include:

Customized Employment: a unique job placement service that focuses on identifying the unique characteristics and interests of the job seeker and identifying or creating a position that would best suit the job seeker’s profile.

Job Development: a systematic approach to identifying and contacting potential employers on behalf of a client.

Career Exploration: to assist an individual in selecting an employment goal amongst several potential options.

Supported Employment: a system of support for people with disabilities in regards to ongoing employment in a variety of work settings.

Summer Program: helps teach transitional youth with autism vocational skills and appropriate work behaviors.
