Assistance to access and maintain employment or higher education Service
It’s a sad fact that people with disabilities have a significantly higher level of unemployment than the rest of the population, even though many are well-suited for most workplaces.
The ability of a person to obtain – and maintain – meaningful and productive employment is dependent in many ways on the quality of his or her access to higher education, vocational programs and skill development. Employment assistance offered by the government, non-profit agencies, or educational institutions can fill the training and employment gap that prevents people who are willing and eager to work from earning a sustainable paycheck.
There are many factors that may hold people back from employment, but having a disability shouldn’t be one of them.

Here at Miss Bella Support Sevices we have a unique service for students with disabilities and their personal assistants. Student Health Services offers guidance and experienced consulting to make things easier. We hope that this service will be taken advantage of to replace the old routine of “learning as you go,” which can be very stressful for both parties. At Student Health Services you get an explanatory demonstration by a registered nurse, nurse practitioner or physical therapist who will be able to guide you. To access this service, call the Student Health Services appointment desk at 860-486-2719 and make an appointment!
It is often helpful to outline your responsibilities and tasks prior to your appointment so you can get demonstrations specific to the needs of the student you are assisting.
Assistance to access and maintain employment or higher education Service for All Needs
A Personal Assistant (PA) provides the support necessary for a student with a disability (SWD) to live independently. The person with a disability recruits, interviews, hires, trains, pays and when necessary fires his/her own assistants..
Personal Assistants should have a willingness to learn and perform daily tasks for individuals with disabilities. Dependability, flexibility and sensitivity are among the most important qualities of a good personal assistant.
