Supported Employment Program

 

The Workshop and the Supported Employment Program (SEP) provides support and services to individuals with developmental disabilities. The program helps individuals obtain competitive work in their community and provides support to ensure each individual's success in the workplace.
 

Individuals utilize their own personal strengths, talents and abilities while working for compensation in a community-integrated work environment.

Assistance and Support

As part of the Supported Employment Program, The Workshop provides job placement assistance, supervised employment training, vocational development, and job coaching to individuals who have disabilities that impede their ability to acquire successful, independent, competitive employment.

Our program helps the individuals understand and learn:

  • Work Expectations                        

  • Workplace Behavior

  • Workplace Safety                             

  • Production Goals

  • Task Completion

There are many capable workers at The Workshop. Businesses willing to offer employment opportunities to the individuals we serve should contact Cindy Foley, Placement Coordinator, at 815-777-2211.
