Pre-Employment Transition Services now offered!

CILO is offering a brand new program through a partnership with Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD).
Pre-Employment Transition Services will be provided to students ages 14-21 who are on IEP's or 504 plans. These introductory services starting with Self-Advocacy Instruction are meant to help students with disabilities get an early start on identifying their needs, career interests, and options for their future.

Personal Care Assistance 
Have you been wrestling with issues of Pers onal Care Assistance and decided that it is finally time to get some help?   Consider joining a network of peers with disabilities who also use the services of Personal Care Assistants (PCA). CILO's PCA Networking Group can share tips and ideas for maintaining freedom, flexibility and control in how to find, hire and keep personal care assistants. This group provides an opportunity to discuss ideas and ways to overcome the acute shortage of PCAs, triggering a crisis and silent epidemic for people with disabilities across the nation. If interested in being part of this discussion, please call Suzanne Hopkins, Director of Programs, at (513) 241-2600, ext. 122 or email

In most cases, CILO will be closed when Cincinnati Public Schools close due to inclement weather. Please call our office on those wintry days to make sure we are open before coming to class, attending a group, or if you have an appointment!
