Once you have been on the job for some time and feel comfortable working on your own, your job coach will step back and let you work independently. But, don’t worry; your Stand Up, Inc. job coach will not be too far away. They will continue to be available to you and to your job supervisor as long as you work for that company. Once independence has been achieved, the job coach will still visit you on the job site, usually monthly. This will allow the job coach, you, and your employer an opportunity to discuss and resolve any issues or changes regarding the job. Follow-Along is an important part of long-term job success.
