Supported Employment – Individual Employment Support
Activities needed to help a participant obtain and maintain an individual job in competitive or customized employment, or self-employment, in an integrated work setting in the general workforce for which an individual is compensated at or above the minimum wage, but not less than the customary wage and level of benefits paid by the employer for the same or similar work performed by individuals without disabilities. The service may be delivered for an intensive period upon the participant’s initial employment to support the participant who, because of their disability, would not be able to sustain employment without support. Supports in the intensive period are delivered in a face-to-face setting, one-on-one. The service may also be delivered to a participant on a less intensive, ongoing basis (“follow along”) where supports are delivered either face-to-face or by phone with the participant and/or his or her employer. Services are individualized and may include but are not limited to: job development, discovery, training and systematic instruction, job coaching, benefit support, travel training, and other workplace support services including services not specifically related to job-skill training that enable the participant to be successful in integrating into the job setting.
Supported Employment – Small Group Employment Support
Services and training activities provided to participants in regular business, industry and community settings for groups of two to eight workers with disabilities. Services may include mobile crews and other business- based workgroups employing small groups of workers with disabilities in employment in the community. Services must be provided in a manner that promotes integration into the workplace and interaction between participants and people without disabilities. Services may include but are not limited to: job placement, job development, negotiation with prospective employers, job analysis, training and systematic instruction, job coaching, benefit support, travel training and planning.
