Supported Employment: Working for People with Significant Disabilities

Alabama

~~“Supported employment (SE) is a customer-driven approach that assesses individuals with the most-significant disabilities and assists eligible individuals in obtaining competitive, integrated employment.
The program is offered by Vocational Rehabilitation Service (VRS), a division of the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services (ADRS), in collaboration with several partners throughout the state.  SE uses Milestones to Employment (MTE) in connecting employers with valuable employees who care about their job. 
MTE involves up to four milestone steps:
Milestone 1 – Situational assessment and/or discovery
Milestone 2 – Job search/job placement
Milestone 3 – Job coaching
Milestone 4 – Long-term follow-up”
