On-The-Job Training (OJT – Adults)
On-the-Job Training (OJT) is a time-limited individual skill acquisition program that can be learned on the job. On-the-Job Training occurs in an integrated, community-based employment setting. OJT clients are paid at minimum wage and above. OJT participants interact with individuals without disabilities to the same extent that other individuals in comparable positions interact with other persons.
Employment services assist individuals with a disability to obtain or maintain competitive, integrated employment, consistent with the unique strengths, abilities, interests, and informed choices of the individual.
Supported employment assists individuals with a most significant disability* obtain competitive, integrated employment, including customized employment. This service is individualized, consistent with the unique strengths, abilities, interests, and informed choice of the individual, with ongoing support services.
*Individuals with the most significant disabilities include those for whom competitive integrated employment has not historically occurred, or for whom competitive integrated employment has been interrupted or intermittent as a result of a significant disability; and who, because of the nature and severity of their disabilities, need intensive supported employment services and extended services after the transition from support provided by the designated State unit, in order to perform this work.
