Bucks IU offers new services for adults with disabilities

Posted

The Bucks County Intermediate Unit (Bucks IU) offers a new suite of services for individuals with disabilities over the age of 21.

Bucks IU’s Adult Programs and Services form a natural extension to the agency’s existing, high-quality services for children with disabilities from birth through age 21. Person-centered and growth-oriented, the adult programs and services offer an opportunity for this more mature population as they transition to adulthood. Many may find an extra level of comfort working with the Bucks IU, having previously received services from the agency.

The Bucks IU’s Adult Employment Services provide individuals with the ability to meet the goal of obtaining and sustaining competitive, integrated employment. Provided by the Bucks IU’s knowledgeable, qualified and experienced staff, these new services offer a variety of supports tailored to each individual’s unique needs. These services features job skills training, access to our established partnerships with a wide variety of community businesses located throughout Bucks County, and job search and development supports.

Provided as an itinerant service, the Adult Employment Services also offer: career assessment, job finding or development, and job coaching and support.

Persons with disabilities, aged 21 and older, may be eligible for the new programs and services from the Bucks IU.

Contact the Bucks IU Adult Programs and Services team at 215-348-2940 x1330 or email AdultPrograms@BucksIU.org.

As additional Bucks IU Adult Program and Services updates and details become available, they will be posted on the Bucks IU’s website at BucksIU.org/AdultPrograms.

The Bucks IU’s Adult Programs and Services are offered in accordance with the Office of Development Programs (ODP).
