Securing a job in the community

Individual Employment Support can help a person learn how to do a new job or get better at their current position. It supports someone about:

  • different job tasks,
  • technology that can make their job easier,
  • and how to work more easily with other people.

When to Apply this Service

The person s service and support administrator, or SSA, will assess them for a need for Individual Employment Support. If there is a need, the SSA will include it in the person’s individual service plan.

This service includes

  • job coaching,
  • training for Assistive Technology used on the job,
  • other workplace support services, including services not specifically related to job skill training, that help the person succeed in integrating into their job setting.
  • and personal care and assistance (as a component of an Individual Employment Support activity).

Individual Employment Support is provided in a way that matches the person’s interests, strengths, priorities, and abilities while meeting their personal and career goals. This service does not support someone looking for a job. Learn more about that with Career Planning.
