Supported employment services at VIP provide initial and ongoing support, service and training to help those served find and keep paid employment in a community setting. The services include job site development, job coaching and job shadowing support services. A work site assessment will be completed to analyze the job and the work environment to promote a good match for the person served, and to identify any health or safety considerations that will be addressed.
Services are provided at the employment setting in the community. Hours of service will vary by the job, and are discussed and agreed on at the time of the job offer. Initial staffing may be very high, up to and including one to one intervention, with fading of job coaching over a planned period of time. Follow along support is maintained with a minimum of one contact per month.
•Trial Work Experience
The VIP Program provides a variety of work experiences that are Person Centric. Plans are based on individual needs and assessments.
CLS services are face-to-face services, and as such, services cannot be provided when a consumer is asleep (except in very rare and unusual situations).
CLS is not meant to be a cleaning/ housekeeping service. The consumer must be directly involved in the tasks that are being performed by CLS staff, and it must be written in the consumer’s plan of service as a treatment goal to be billed to Medicaid.
CLS services are not meant to monitor, supervise, or provide companionship to consumers. CLS services are meant to provide skills training and personal assistance to help increase a consumer’s level of independence in their home and their community.
CLS services are not meant to be provided in locations outside of the consumer’s local community.
Transportation mileage to and from medical appointments is not a covered CLS service (mileage should be requested through your local DHS worker as needed).
CLS cannot be provided while a consumer is in an institutional setting such as the hospital, nursing home, or jail. CLS is provided in community settings (for example the consumer’s home, library, grocery store, etc).
ALL VISITORS ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE AN APPOINTMENT DUE TO RESTRICTED AREAS OF OPERATION AND STAFF AVAILABILITY.
