Job coaches support individuals to obtain employment that best meets the individual’s needs. Once a job is obtained, the job coach works to support the participant to become independent on the job or help to bridge paid support with natural support at the work site. The program can serve persons with any OVR certified disability (not limited to ID and autism).
Access to Supported Employment services is made through Consolidated or Person/Family Directed Support (PFDS) Waivers, OVR contract, Adult Autism Waiver, or private pay.
