Utah Division of Services for People with Disabilities Annual Report (2015)

Utah

“Supported Employment helps adults with disabilities obtain, maintain, and advance in competitive employment in integrated work settings paying minimum wage or more. These services are provided individually or in groups, with a job coach or co-worker supports. Supported employment is designed to be flexible enough to accommodate both the needs of the employer and the needs of the person. It can be arranged on a full or part time basis, during traditional or non-traditional workdays, or work hours and take place in settings where the person has the opportunity to work with co-workers who do not have intellectual disabilities."
