Supported Employment

What is it?

Supported Employment is one of the services offered through M-RON Inc. to provide individuals with developmental disabilities the opportunity to obtain and secure meaningful employment opportunities within the region.


How Supported Employment Works

Supported Employment concentrates on finding out what kind of job a person wants to secure and where his or her interests, life experiences, and talents lie.  A vocational profile is compiled on each applicant.  This profile looks at personal qualities and an employment opportunity is carved at a business which matches the profile.  All research on the individual is gathered by professional supported employment counsellors. Individuals are then taught the skills they need to complete the job in the best place to learn them – the workplace.  Ongoing support is provided to help each person so that they learn work skills and meet the expectations of their employer.
