About Career Planning
Career Planning is a person-centered service that assists a person with a disability to identify a career direction and develop a plan for achieving competitive, integrated, individual employment or self-employment at or above the State’s minimum wage.
Assistance in identifying skills, priorities, and capabilities determined through an individualized discovery process are documented in a final Career Plan that is used for a referral to Vocational Rehabilitation.
This service requires staff to attend 12 hours of training and receive ongoing support through the Department.
OADS has developed a new Maine Career Planning Tool and training beginning in January 2019.
In order to register for the training staff must be currently certified as Work Support or Employment Specialists and the Provider must be enrolled to provide Career Planning under Maine Care Section 18, 20, 21 or 29.
