Traditional Supported Employment Services (SEMP)
Supported employment services provide the ongoing support services that are necessary to obtain and maintain an individual with a most significant disability in integrated community employment. Supported Employment services are for individuals who are ready to work at a job in their community. Supported employment services are provided both in the intensive services phase and the extended services phase:
Intensive SEMP: Includes all activities necessary to obtain a job in the community that meets each person’s vocational goals and unique needs. The intensive phase of SEMP includes: Intake, Pre-employment assessment, job development and job placement. Intensive coaching support is provided until the person can function independently at the worksite, at which time they enter Extended SEMP.
Extended SEMP: Once the person is independent at the worksite ongoing support services are provide as needed to support and maintain the individual at their work site throughout the duration of their employment.
