Supported Education and Employment
What is Supported Education? Supported Education provides assistance to students so they can successfully return to school or begin either a community-based school system or a post-secondary educational program. The Employment Specialist meets with the client and family, PIER staff, and appropriate school staff.
What is Supported Employment (SE)? Supported Employment is an approach to vocational rehabilitation that assists clients (and members of their families) in finding and keeping a job that pays a competitive wage, capitalizes on personal strengths, and provides the support necessary to be successful in the workplace. Examples of specific services include, but are not limited to: finding a job, keeping a job, connection to resources, an updated résumé, on-site job coaching, and improving interview skills.
