Supported Employment

Supported employment refers to service provisions

wherein people with disabilities, including 

intellectual disabilitiesmental health, and 

traumatic brain injury, among others, are

assisted with obtaining and maintaining 

employment originally through the primary

models of job crews, enclaves, or the often

preferred job coach or person-centered

approaches. Supported employment is

considered to be one form of employment

in which wages are expected,

together with benefits from an employer

in a competitive workplace, though some versions refer to disability agency paid employment.
