Individualized Supported Employment

Once the member has successfully closed with Vocational Rehabilitation (VR), the member will move into long term job coaching through the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD). Individualized Supported Employment (ISE) involves job coaching, developing natural supports, and contacting the member’s employer. The member will stay in ISE for one year and then move into Employment Support Aide services.

ESA is normally provided once a week or bi-monthly contact to monitor the member at work, ensuring no problems have arisen, changes in schedule, and making contact with the employer related to the member’s work performance.
