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.
