What are Job Coaches and what do they do?
Job Coaches are individuals who specialize in assisting individuals with barriers/disabilities to learn and accurately carry out job duties, and/or manage anxiety or mental health issues. Job Coaches provide one-on-one training tailored to the needs of the employee. They may first do a job analysis to identify the job duties, followed by developing a specific plan as to how they can best train the employee to work more and more on his/her own until completely self-sufficient and able to perform job duties accurately and effectively without assistance.
