RiSE Career Services is an approved provider through Louisiana Rehabilitation Services. Supported Employment (SE) is a program established by the federal government that enables individuals with severe disabilities to become employed. Our Supported Employment program incorporates the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis and best practices in the field of SE to assist individuals with disabilities in identifying and achieving their career goals. Individuals are placed in integrated employment settings, with the support of a job coach. Supports provided by the job coach are systematically faded over time and natural supports are provided to attain the maximum level of independence. On-going support and extended services are also provided to ensure maintenance of competitive, integrated employment. Supported Employment services are offered at no cost to individuals who qualify through Louisiana Rehabilitation Services (LRS).

Sessions are offered in group and individual formats.
