HEARING SERVICES INFANT PROGRAMOffers services to assist children in achieving age-appropriate language, readiness and social skills which will enable them to enroll in early childhood activities within their neighborhoods. The Hearing Services Infant Program offers a comprehensive, multifaceted program for infants and toddlers who have hearing losses. Any child with a hearing loss significant enough to warrant the use of hearing aids is considered a candidate for the program. Referrals can be made for any child as soon as the diagnosis of a hearing loss is confirmed including newborns and children who are candidates for, or who have received, cochlear implants. Parent training and center-based services are the two key components of the program. Home-based services are based upon Project SKI-HI, a comprehensive intervention program for children with hearing losses and their families. Parents and family members learn about hearing loss, the use of hearing aids and cochlear implants, communication options and the development of language. This model recognizes the importance of helping parents and family members learn to work/play effectively with their child in order to stimulate audition, communication and language skills. The focus of these sessions is on the parent/family members, and how best to interact with the child. The parent advisor does not work directly with the child, but instructs, advises, teaches and models activities that the parent/family members can use with their child. Center-based services are initially provided to children and family members on an individual basis. This affords the family members an opportunity to ask questions, to practice using and troubleshooting the amplification equipment and to observe and imitate the ways in which the staff work with the child. Following this initial period, the staff may continue to work with the child individually or in a small group. Within the toddler groups, emphasis is placed on learning turn-taking skills, social communication and cooperative play, with a continued emphasis on the development of auditory skills and the acquisition of language. Speech therapy services may be provided to the child on an individual pull-out basis or as part of a collaborative instructional model within the classroom.

SUPPORTED EMPLOYMENTOffers a program that was created to assist students and individuals with disabilities beyond the classroom. The Supported Employment initiative has been empowering students and other individuals with disabilities by assisting employers in recruiting qualified workers with disabilities and training them for entry-level positions. The program uses a person-centered planning approach whereby an individual’s unique interests and abilities are taken into consideration during the job development phase. The Nassau BOCES staff canvasses community businesses for openings, matching individual’s strengths with employer needs. Supported workers earn at least minimum wage for entry-level positions. Vocational rehabilitation counselors and job coaches work together with employers and individuals ensuring that the best possible fit between job and employee is met for a win-win situation. When an individual first starts a job, the job coach works one-on-one with the newly hired worker teaching all tasks involved in the job as well as the soft skills necessary to fit in with the culture of the business. The job coach remains in place full time initially until the employee has successfully learned to work independently and then gradually fades to several visits per month to make sure things are going smoothly. Often, internships participated in while in school lead to actual paid employment. Nassau BOCES provides long-term, follow-along support for these workers, their families and employers through grants from New York State Department of Education (ACCES-VR) and the New York State Office of People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD).
