Employment Services Program

The Employment Services Program is an innovative, award-winning service that supports people with disabilities to obtain community employment. An Employment Training Specialist (ETS) helps match individuals’ capabilities and skills with job openings in the area.

Once a job has been offered, the ETS works alongside the participant the first several days to learn the job, at no additional cost to the employer.

As the participant becomes skilled at their job, the Employment Training Specialist fades direct supports, leaving a well-trained, reliable employee.

Supported Employment provides services to people across a wide spectrum of disabilities. The Oklahoma Department of Rehabilitative Services (DRS) funds and supports DRTC and other services for people with disabilities.
