    Programs that find paid, meaningful work in a variety of community-based settings for people who have disabilities and which assign a "job coach" to work side-by-side with each client to interface with the employer and other employees, and provide training in basic job skills and work-related behaviors, assistance with specific tasks as needed and whatever other initial or ongoing support is required to ensure that the individual retains competitive employment. Included are individual placement models in which a job coach works on-the-job with a single individual and group models such as enclaves (which are self-contained work units of people needing support) and mobile work crews, in which a group of workers with disabilities receives continuous support and supervision from supported employment personnel. In the enclave model, groups of people with disabilities are trained to work as a team alongside employees in the host business supported by a specially trained on-site supervisor, who may work either for the host company or the placement agency. A variation of the enclave approach is called the "dispersed enclave" and is used in service industries (e.g., restaurants and hotels). Each person works on a separate job, and the group is dispersed throughout the company. In the mobile work crew model, a small team of people with disabilities works as a self-contained business and undertakes contract work such as landscaping and gardening projects. The crew works at various locations in a variety of settings within the community under the supervision of a job coach.

    Work Incentive Counseling (WIC)Many people receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and/or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) would like to explore work opportunities or increase their earnings, but are concerned about losing cash benefits and health care. While these benefits are intended to provide basic support for millions of persons with disabilities, they have evolved as a new obstacle to the search for gainful employment and greater participation in community living. Since 2001, AHEDD has been helping participants understand how to maximize their benefits and related work incentives to achieve greater financial independence and reach their employment goals. We can provide WIC to anyone receiving an SSI and/or SSDI cash payment between the ages of 14 and 64. Ideally, this service is for persons who are working or are considering work in the near future.FranklinAHEDD - Franklin & FultonAHEDD, Inc.
