The process used to achieve supported employment helps consumers, for whom competitive work would otherwise be unlikely due to the severity of their disability, to actively choose, secure and retain competitive full or part time jobs. Intensive interim and extended support phases, which include both job specific and individual/community support are the distinguishing characteristics of supported employment.
