Employment Specialist Services
The Maine Department of Human Services funds Employment Specialist Services.
From the Maine DHHS website: Employment Specialist Services include services necessary to support a member in maintaining Employment.
(1) periodic interventions on the job site to identify a member’s opportunities for improving productivity, minimizing the need for formal supports by promoting natural workplace relationships, adhering to expected safety practices, and promoting successful employment and workplace inclusion.
(2) assistance in transitioning between employers when a member’s goal for type of employment is not substantially changed, including assistance identifying appropriate employment opportunities and assisting the member in acclimating to a new job.
Job Development Services
The Maine Department of Human Services will also fund Employment Specialist Services for Job Development if Vocational Rehabilitation denies services under the Rehabilitation Act and the member is unable to benefit from Vocational Rehabilitation.
If Employment Specialist Services are used for job development, current documentation of ineligibility from Vocational Rehabilitation is required.
