Supported Employment

Services provided are designed to enhance social and daily living skills, work and productivity skills, attendance, stamina, and communication skills, along with many other skills necessary for community independence.

Supported Employment Services are designed to place individuals with disabilities into jobs in the community with the assistance of a job coach who provides the training and supervision necessary to help the individual to perform the job. A job coach will make sure the job is done to the employer’s satisfaction. Supported Employment provides an opportunity to enter the workforce for some for whom it was not previously considered possible. Benefits to the individual include increased wage earning opportunities, increased social interaction and increased independence. Supported Employment provides a unique opportunity for the general public to become familiar with the employability of persons with disabilities in the job market. Supported Employment can maximize GTI worker potential for income, productivity, social skills, and community integration.
