Portrait of Jessica KleistJessica Kleist

The podcast place for cerebral-palsy-career features Jessica Kleist, MS. Ed., LPC-IT, Professional Counselor in Training and owner of Abilities First Counseling & Empowerment Services, LLC

I recommend Jessica's latest podcast (it's free )

If your son or daughter has a physical, emotional or intellectual challenge, you’ll find tips in this show about how to foster the self-confidence he or she needs to make an effective school-to-work transition.

As Dr Rosina interviews Jessica, you'll learn how to:

  1. Identify or clarify which dream job to target.
  2. Determine the education needed for that role.
  3. Understand why work experience is important and how to gain that experience.
  4. Decide which job is best – taking abilities and challenges into consideration.
  5. Uncover the skills to highlight during job search/job interviews.
  6. Manage unexpected challenges and maintain motivation after setbacks.

Imagine the sense of accomplishment you’ll feel when your youngster gains an independent life through meaningful employment, knowing the role you've played in helping turn his or her dreams into reality.
