Supported employment services may be available for individuals with the most significant disabilities requiring special on-the-job supervision. Supported Employment is defined as competitive employment in an integrated setting or employment in integrated work settings in which individuals are working toward competitive employment. Supported employment should be consistent with an individual’s strengths, resources, priorities, concerns, abilities, interests and informed choice. Ongoing support services are provided for workers with the most significant disabilities. If an individual is eligible, VR could provide community-based job training if other funding sources are available to provide long-term, follow-along, or on-the-job support services that the individual needs to remain employed.
