Supported Employment: Developing Natural Supports
Training for Indiana employment professionals and Vocational Rehabilitation staff. Learn how to develop real-world, on-the-job and off-site relationships and assistance for employees with disabilities.
We all have our go-to assists on the job. Our guy down the hall who knows how to clear paper jams from the copier. The department secretary who reminds us that the office will be closed for the holiday. The co-worker who's happy to have company and will give you a ride when the bus doesn't come. Lunch buddies.During this three-hour training, learn how to develop these "natural supports" for new employees who have disabilities. Establishing these new relationships and routines is key to an employee's long-term success, and to your ability to fade your supports and presence at the worksite.
