Supported Employment (SE)

Supported employment facilitates competitive work in integrated settings for individuals with the most severe disabilities. Based on the nature of the disability Supported Employment may coordinate job coach services, and other supports such as assistive technology, and specialized job training.

Employers having positions with a high turnover rate and constant need to refill positions can benefit from Supported Employment. These high turn over positions are perfect starting places for individuals who can graduate into new positions later. Employers will have a pool of job seekers readily available to fill such positions. Tax credits are available. Many times employers do not receive a credit for hiring people with disabilities because they are unaware they have an employee with a disability. With supported employment, you are aware up front you will be eligible for a credit.
