Abstract

Supported employment services have been utilized with developmentally disabled persons for nearly two decades (Wehman, 1988). This article explores the issues related to the use of supported employment and time-related transitional employment for blind and visually impaired persons, many of whom are unemployed or underemployed. It defines the concepts of supported and time-limited transitional employment, describes the characteristics that distinguish these services from others, and discusses the need for these services from the ecological, philosophical, fiscal, and learning perspectives.
