What is Supported Employment?

 

Support is provided to assist your employee to work towards gaining independence on the job.

 

  • Coaching supports depend on the employee and the employer, but may include:

 

  • During the hiring process, may assist with the application process, including the interview.

 

  • After hired, the job coach may assist with 

    • new hire paperwork

    • orientation

    • learning tasks

    • establishing routine

    • understanding and meeting employer expectations

    • research, identify, and implement agreed upon reasonable accommodations

    • disability awareness training for employer/co-workers

 

Communication is key.  When in doubt, please talk with your employee and job coach about any questions, comments, or concerns. Job coaching is flexible, and the ultimate goal is to support you, your team, and your employee, if a need should arise.
