Supported Employment

Supported Employment is an evidence-based method of helping people with disabilities thrive in a work environment. CIS-trained "job coaches" provide on-the-job support for tasks in the workplace, helping individuals navigate unfamiliar tasks and situations. Supported employment is provided on both a short-term and a long-term basis, depending on each individual's needs and preferences.
