Pre-Employment/Transitioning Youth Services
The Arc NCR is a Community Rehabilitative partner with the Maryland State Department of Education’s Division of Rehabilitative Services (DORS). Students at least 14 years old and no more than 21, who are in high school or other approved educational program, and who have a documented disability (i.e., are on a IEP or 504 Plan), may qualify for Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-Ets) to prepare them for employment. The Arc NCR is able to provide services that are authorized by DORS which help prepare students for life after graduation. Completing an online referral is the first step in the process.
As seasoned Job Developers and Certified Employment Specialists, our team have the skills needed to support your child’s growth and independence. We have extensive experience working with individuals with varying abilities including, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), specific learning disabilities, autism, physical impairments, genetic disorders, neurological conditions, anxiety, depression, and mental health challenges.
Adult Vocational Rehabilitation
Additionally, in partnership with the Division of Rehabilitation Services (DORS), The Arc NCR assists adults with a short-term, targeted approach to develop or re-establish specific skills, attitudes, personal characteristics, and work behaviors to achieve positive employment outcomes.

Vocational Rehabilitation offers:
- Learning experiences that will give individuals the tools to represent themselves in a professional manner in every aspect of the job seeking process.
- Job development services provide people served with professional support to develop cover letters, resumes, proper interview techniques, and job search assistance.
- Individualized job support assists people with learning job skills, problem solving and adapting to a new work environment.
