Supported employment is one of the many effective ways of assisting persons with disabilities in gaining and maintaining employment. DARS partners with over 60 employment services organizations in providing situational assessment, job development, placement and training services, and long-term follow along both individually and in groups. DARS may provide supported employment or job coach training services, if appropriate and with the agreement of their DARS counselor, to consumers of the agency as long as they are considered ”most severely disabled” regardless of their impairment or disability cause. All of the Employment Services Organizations that provide supported employment and job coaching services are CARF accredited to ensure that our mutual consumers are receiving quality services.
