Are you looking for a rewarding and meaningful career opportunity supporting adults with autism or other developmental disabilities? Would you enjoy a career away from a desk and out of the office? Join our team! STEPis a day support service that helps people with disabilities seek employment. We provide services to over 200 adults in Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura counties.

We serve adults, ages 18-65, who have a developmental disability, as well as some individuals who have mental health needs. We work with people who have a number of intellectual and/or physical disabilities, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, etc. Most of the people we support have challenging behaviors, which are often tied to a skills deficit in communication, coping skills, or social ability.

Service is delivered in the community at work sites, community colleges, and other locations in the area where our clients live.

A typical day in the STEP service is 6 hours and begins at a client home or a morning meeting location. Some of our clients are transported by our staff or their parents, and some transport themselves via car or public transportation.
