Supported Competitive Employment for Adults With Disabilities – 50610

(300 clock hours - Selective Admission)

This program enables adult students with moderate and severe disabilities who are functioning at supported levels to acquire skills necessary for successful individual supported competitive employment. Features of supported employment include intensive on-site training, fade-off, ongoing monitoring, and on-site advocacy by a job coach or employment specialist. The program includes, but is not limited to, positive work attitudes and habits, appropriate hygiene and grooming skills, related safety procedures, appropriate decision-making skills, specific job-related skills, and self-reliance and initiative. The weekly work hour goal will be identified in the student’s Adult Individual Educational Plan (AIEP). The content of this program is expected to be provided as part of employment activities, not as a pre-employment requirement.
