Job Path on Long Island News Radio

Job Path was featured on Long Island News Radio this past weekend! Johnadam, one of our Employment Specialists, very thoughtfully developed a connection with a longtime radio host named Scott Passeser who has a show called “Radio Jobline.” He’s all about leveling the playing field in the job market for people from marginalized communities. He invited us to speak about Customized Employment and the value of including people with developmental disabilities in the workforce.

Turning NO into YES for more than 40 years.

JOB PATH was established in 1978 to find ways to help young adults and adults with autism and other developmental disabilities join the workforce.

JOB PATH was a pioneer: the first effort of this kind in New York State and one of the first in the country. Today our programs help people find jobs, live in their own homes, and contribute to community life.
