Harrigan Developmental Services has been an outstanding partner to the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music by providing hands-on oversight to make the experience of their intern remarkably positive for both the business and the intern!
— Greg, President & CEO of Wisconsin Conservatory of Music
Harrigan Development Services has provided our son with a variety of opportunities to become more involved in the community and to improve his self-confidence. We have utilized vocational, Compass Peers, individual support, and mentoring services. I think what sets HDS apart from other providers is Andy and his staff’s empathy for what can be a difficult process to navigate. I feel confident that our son is receiving the best services possible from Harrigan Development Services.

Harrigan Development opened our eyes to a wonderful program we didn’t even know existed. We have an amazing employee that couldn’t be a better fit. Andy is professional, consistent and very passionate about his work. We will definitely be using Harrigan Development for further hiring or intern needs.

Harrigan Development Services is a great company to work with. From the beginning, they have had top notch communication and service. Over the course of the last few months, I have become very familiar with Harrigan Development Service and I have to say that they provide one of the most unique services I’ve ever heard of. Working with clients with a range of disabilities, they really do a great job of placing the right client with the right company & opportunity. Also, they provide the training and equipment necessary for each of their clients to succeed in their roles.

Since Zack has started with us, he’s been a great person to have on the team. Not only does having him around prove to be a positive influence on our employees and company, but the work he does on a daily basis is very beneficial towards Rite Hite’s recruiting & internship programs. This all could not have been done without the expertise of Harrigan Development Services and its employees. I would recommend them to anyone!

Brian worked with my son Jake who was a student with Autism in his final year of high school. During this time Jake was deeply isolated in video games and television. As a result, he suffered from depression and a lack of self-confidence.

Jake became involved with Brian who helped him create a supportive service plan that engaged him in social activities. He began to identify his interests and began making social alliances in the community.

After connecting with new social outlets such as the library and rock climbing with Brian as his clinical coach and counselor, Jake became excited to include new social supports in his life. He has been more self-confident, less depressed and has started to develop new, healthy relationships with peers.

Now Jake is 22, working in the community and is making a productive contribution to society.

We have worked with Harrigan Development for about 2 years now, after switching from another company. It was the best change we could have made for our son. Less than three weeks after making the switch, our son was already in his first work trial. His job coach is amazing! It was so nice knowing we had people working with our son who genuinely cared about him and wanted to see him succeed. After two 12 week job trials he was offered a position and has been working with them ever since. It is so heartwarming, as a parent, to see him loving a job and feeling successful. He couldn’t have done it without Andy’s team of amazing employees. We are so glad to be associated with such an awesome company.

Harrigan Development Services helped me find a great employee who is still with the company 7 months later. It was comforting knowing that I had a pre-screened candidate when making a hiring decision. Andy provided one-on-one support for several months to both me and my employee to make sure we were satisfied. His program also allowed me to decrease the risk businesses face with hiring new employees by the use of a subsidized internship. The internship HDS set up allowed this young man to prove himself at no cost to me. He is now able to use his experience to pursue an apprenticeship program to further his experience and credentials in the field.

Harrigan Development Services is a great fit for me. It’s hard to find good candidates and it’s hard to find the time to ensure the candidate is really right for the job.  On top of that, Andy provided coaching to ensure a smooth transition into the job and he’s still available for that coaching today. HDS has made hiring a lot easier!
— Small Business Owner 
HDS not only found the perfect match for me and my business, but they have also been their for all of the follow up support we needed. Its nice to see that we have people like this in the community.

For the past two years Andy has worked one-one-one with my son who has Autism. His passion, understanding and drive to help individuals with special needs helped my son and our family significantly.
— Vesna, Business Owner/Parent
Harrigan Development Services provided us with an intern that far exceeded our expectations. Andy is a champion for his clients and works tirelessly to ensure placements are a fit for his clients and for the employer. I highly recommend that employers consider incorporating Harrigan Development into their recruiting efforts.
