Individuals entering into our Supported Employment Program are assessed based on their needs and goals. CVR's Employment Specialists prepare an intake which establishes the individuals plan for placement into competitive employment. Our Employment Specialists provide interviewing skills, resume design, cover letter design, job search, job sampling, soft skills, light computer training and transportation training.
Once an individual is placed into competitive employment in the community the Employment Specialist provides intensive job training allowing the individual to become comfortable at their position. CVR provides Long Term Follow-Along for persons that may need on-going support for the duration of their employment.
CVR's Employment Specialists are trained through Region II Rehabilitation Continuing Education Program operated by the State University of New York at Buffalo
