Supported employment for adults with individual and developmental disabilities
Supported Employment helps individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities earn sustainable wages and be a contributing member of their community. Easterseals UCP provides one-on-one assistance to help individuals explore what interests them, understand their skillsets, develop job skills and learn what it takes to keep a job.
We believe with the right support, individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) can earn sustainable wages and be a contributing member of their community. We help the individuals in our program get great jobs.
Our Supported Employment team maintains relationships with local businesses who welcome hiring the adults in our program. To prepare individuals for work, we first help them under understand their skillsets and career interests. From there, we help them write a great resume, look for jobs and practice interviewing. Once they are hired, Easterseals UCP provides on-the-job support, continuous job training and coaching on how to build supportive relationships with their boss and coworkers.
