Abstract

A national three-year longitudinal study of supported employment is reported. This study surveyed state agencies involved with vocational rehabilitation, mental retardation/developmental disabilities, and mental health as well as other pertinent state agencies to assess the extent and nature of supported employment services. The results of this survey indicate that over 32,000 individuals are currently served in supported employment. Overwhelmingly, these individuals are employed in service-sector positions where they work part- or full-time while earning an average hourly salary of $3.90. The results of this study are discussed in light of their implications for the continued development of supported employment services.
