How to ask for the services you need: 

It can be hard to know how to ask for the kind of help you need. Here are some things to think about.

Do you need help to do these things?

  • Improve your job readiness skills

  • Find a job that works for you

  • Ask for Accommodations in the workplace

  • Find transportation to get to interviews and work

  • Get and use the equipment or devices you need to do a job

  • Communicate and socialize comfortably in a workplace

Here's what you can do:

  • Describe your needs carefully

  • Ask what services they have that could help you

  • Ask if there are other organizations they suggest you call

Say exactly the kind of help you need. If you need help with basic job readiness skills, say I need vocational training. If you need personal support on the job, say I need supported employment or a job coach. If you need special equipment or devices to do a job, say I need adaptive equipment. If you need changes in a workplace to help you do your job, say I need accommodations. If you can’t get to work on your own, say I need help with transportation.
