THE LEARNING DEVELOPMENT CENTER
Chaffey College Disability Programs & Services (DPS) offers an off-site program for students with disabilities – the Learning Development Center (LDC) is a job readiness and job placement program, offering classes and job skills practicum experience to assist students in successful job placement. Students with the potential and desire to obtain competitive – independent, entry level – employment are encouraged to inquire about enrollment.
Students develop relational and communication skills vital to the transition into competitive employment.
Students develop practical money application skills such as making change, managing paychecks and budgeting.
Students develop auditory comprehension to enhance the employment skill of listening
to and following instructions. In addition, students will be informed of
newsworthy events occurring worldwide.
Computer Skills (optional)
In this self-paced lab course, students receive individualized instruction on
the use of a screen reading program to build keyboarding skills. Students
develop transferable skills for use in mainstream courses and/or the work force.
Students acquire communication skills useful for succeeding in a job interview. Students learn and practice many common interview questions and responses.
Job Success Skills
Students learn the most important employment dos and don’ts. Students learn the attitudes and behaviors that are vital to gaining employment and being successful on the job.

WAIII is a cooperative program between Chaffey College and the State Department of Rehabilitation (DOR). It is based on an agreement stating that the Learning Development Center shall assist in the provision of vocational rehabilitation services including job placement to individuals with disabilities. Referrals to the LDC WAIII program come from the Department of Rehabilitation. In addition, when LDC students become job ready, the LDC will refer them to DOR and strongly recommend that they become clients. This allows us to offer them more classes and increased job placement services. Involvement in the WAIII program includes the following:
