Supported Employment Program

When individuals secure competitive employment, it fills them with a sense of pride, identity and personal achievement. Devereux New Jersey’s Supported Employment Program provides personal growth opportunities for adults, age 21 and older, with intellectual and developmental disabilities, autism and other emotional and behavioral challenges. We offer a host of employment services, including pre-placement, job coaching and ongoing coaching.

How Devereux supports adults with disabilities

Devereux New Jersey’s Certified Supported Employment staff support adults by:

  • Conducting a thorough assessment and determining strengths, interests and employment goals
  • Identifying and securing employment partners in the community
  • Assisting in identifying and developing workplace accommodations
  • Helping adults find competitive jobs in the community
  • Providing ongoing support, as needed.
