Supported Employment


In some settings a potential employee may need additional support to be successful on the job. This support may be in the form of a job coach who works with persons with severe disabilities by providing on-site job training assistance and long term support to the employer and employee. The job coach will help the employee learn good work habits and job skills. DVR can often contract with local community rehabilitation programs to provide supported employment services and long term support. During this process, businesses gain reliable, dependable and hardworking employees with a better than average chance of success.

For more information, email the Business Services Team or contact a DVR Office nearest to your place of employment.
