Waivers cover Pre-Vocational Services, Employment Services and Transitional Work Services
Pre-Vocational Services prepare people for paid employment. They are provided in a facility licensed by the Department of Public Welfare under the Chapter 2390 regulations.
Employment services include job finding and job support services. Job finding services are services directed toward preparing individuals for placement in competitive jobs. Services include interview skill training, resume preparation, SSI and SSDI benefits counseling and job searching. Job Support Services (supported Employment) is a follow-up with individuals and their employers to support them in maintaining competitive jobs in their community. This service provides ongoing help in keeping a job once the waiver participant has found employment.
Transitional Work Services offer work experience in a real work environment that is highly supervised. These environments are often known as “enclaves, mobile work force, affirmative industry, work station industry, and transitional employment.” (www.hcsis.state.pa.us)
