Supported Employment 

This service supports people in finding and keeping a job in the community.  It includes activities such as job exploration, assistance in applying for jobs, assistance on the job to ensure the individual has the support necessary to be successful, assistance in building natural supports in the work place, and assistance in learning the routines and requirements of a particular job/workplace.  Supported employment can be phased out as the individual learns the job and performs it successfully in an independent manner or supported employment can continue indefinitely, depending on the individual and his/her particular level of support needs.
