Supported Employment facilitates competitive work in integrated work settings for individuals with most severe disabilities for whom competitive employment has not traditionally occurred, and who, because of the nature and severity of their disability, need ongoing support services in order to perform their job. Supported employment provides assistance on and off the job site such as tailored job coaching, employment counseling, advocacy, specialized job training, ongoing extended support services and re-placement as needed. Supported employment provides an avenue to assist people in achieving greater independence and self-esteem through integrated competitive employment.
