Supported Employment Services are provided for individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities to assist them to prepare for, enter into or retain gainful employment.
Supported Employment provides specialized job development and placement, support on the job, stabilization and job retention services.
All supported employment opportunities are individualized and integrated in community worksites with non-disabled employees.
Supported Employment not only assists in meeting the needs of individuals with disabilities but also meets the labor demands of businesses and industries.
