Job Coaches

A job coach is a person who provides specialized on-site training to an employee who is disabled. Typically, a job coach will help the employee with a disability learn the job, perform the job accurately, efficiently, and safely, and may also help acclimate the employee to the work environment. For more information on job coaches as a reasonable accommodation, see: JAN's A to Z: Job Coaches. For information on hiring or using a job coach, you can contact your local State Vocational Rehabilitation Agency (SVRA).
