Supported employment includes activities needed to sustain paid work, including supervision and training. It consists of two components: job finding and job support.
This may include, but is not limited to, interview assistance, employer outreach and orientation, resume preparation, job searching, and preparation for job tasks.
This consists of training individuals in job assignments, periodic follow-up and/or ongoing support with individuals and their employers. The service must be necessary for individuals to maintain acceptable job performance and work habits, including assistance in learning new work assignments, maintaining job skills, and achieving performance expectations of the employer.
Supported employment services are available to any consumer currently registered in the County IDD system, depending on availability of funds.
