Career exploration, resume writing, job seeking and keeping supports, vocational and supportive counseling, entitlement/benefit education
The primary objective of the Supported Employment and Job Development program is to assist individuals with developmental disabilities to find employment that is consistent with his or her strengths, resources, priorities, concerns, abilities, capabilities, interests and informed choice. Roundup Fellowship’s Certified Vocational Counselors assist with career exploration, resume writing, job seeking and keeping supports, vocational and supportive counseling, and entitlement and benefit education. They will gather and review medical records, educational background, work history and related information, as needed, to determine specifically how an individual’s disabilities affect the that person’s ability to be employed and how vocational rehabilitation services might be of assistance. Job services can include some of the following: the development of an Individualized Plan for Employment (IPE), vocational training, job coaching, assistive technology, worksite accommodations and more. After obtaining employment, a vocational counselor will follow-up to make sure everything is going well and that both the client and employer are satisfied.
