Supported Employment

Supported Employment offers support services to individuals looking to learn job skills, and obtain a job in the community.

AIM has designed this program after the Customized Employment Model; a person-centered approach driven by four categories:

Gathering information from the job seeker to determine interests, skills, and preferences related to possible employment

Job Search Planning
Using information from discovery to plan meaningful employment and a list of potential employers

Job Development
Working collaboratively with the individual and employer to develop a customized job including supports, interests, skills, contributions of employer

Ongoing Supports
Setting up supports to ensure a successful placement with both the individual and employer

Throughout these categories, AIM focuses on finding the individuals full power of potential to be employed. We fully invest in the individual to find a successful job placement, and we assist the individual in building natural supports throughout the place of employment to further enhance success.
