Supported Employment Services go beyond placing a person in
an employment setting. A supported employment specialist works with an individual to develop a plan that will enable
that person to find and maintain successful employment in the community. Once participants are placed in competitive
employment, progress is routinely monitored and reevaluated to ensure they are satisfied and successful at work. Support
services are provided to assure people of any assistance they may require to be successful in their job. Services may
include transportation, coaching, skills training, counseling and evaluation.
