Individualized Supported Employment
Once the client has successfully closed with Vocational Rehabilitation (VR), the client will move into long term job coaching through the Department of Developmental Disabilities (DDD). Individualized Supported Employment (ISE) involves job coaching, developing natural supports, and contacting the client’s employer. The client will stay in ISE for one year and then move into Employment Support Aide services.
Employment Support Aide
Employment Support Aide (ESA) services are offered through the Department of Developmental Disabilities (DDD). ESA is normally provided once a week or bi-monthly contact to monitor the client at work, ensuring no problems have arisen, changes in schedule, and making contact with the employer related to the client’s work performance.
