Our help begins when a program participant meets with a Supported Employment Specialist. The role of an employment specialist and the amount of involvement and assistance an employment specialist provides, is based on the comfort level of clients. We can provide a lot or a little help. Our services can include helping consumers learn how to do their job at the work site or supporting employees off the job.
A Supported Employment Specialist will meet with consumers to discuss the pros and cons and disclosing the consumer’s disability. Ultimately, participants decide and we work to ensure their requests are honored.
