Policy

~~“DBHDD provides Supported Employment services as ongoing supports to assist individuals with disabilities in locating and maintaining meaningful employment in their communities. Supports are designed to capture the individual’s strengths, needs, and interests.

For help accessing supported employment services in your area, please contact your regional field office.

DBHDD works with the Georgia Vocational Rehabilitation Agency to assist people with a range of disabilities to enter or return to the workforce. GVRA funds time-limited supported employment services, providing the early supports up through stabilization, which can occur as early as sixty days after a placement. There are two types of supported employment: traditional supported employment and customized supported employment. Both types require long-term follow-up support in order to assure continued success for people who experience the most significant disabilities. It is DBHDD’s responsibility to provide those long-term supports.”
