Job Developer Training

Grit & Flow believes that job developers are an instrumental part of the employment cycle for individuals with I/DD. We would like to thank the California State Council on Developmental Disabilities (SCDD) for awarding a grant to provide hundreds of hours of training to California job developer specialists. Our training directly aligns with the SCDD Goal #2: Employment, through the training professionals directly responsible for preparing, guiding, securing, and supporting individuals with I/DD in employment.
