Supported Employment Services are available to help employers make accommodations and to find funding to cover costs, such as for:



Personal support: These accommodations are often subsidized by government programs.
Sign language interpreter, job coach, or personal assistant.


Equipment: There are many programs to cover most costs for equipment accommodations.
Technical devices, communication aids, or ergonomic workstations.


Structural accommodations: These are most commonly funded, since they can often be the most expensive.
Hand rails, ramps, widened doorways, or increased accessibility to common facilities.


Employers can benefit from the specific skills of qualified people with disabilities without needing to make extensive modifications to the physical workplace or the overall work environment.
