What's the difference between competitive, supported, and shelltered employment?
I work at Sam's club giving out samples, a job I got through VR. I don't have an on-site job coach but I meet with VR once weekly for off-site support. Which of these 3 am I going through? The label is very important to me. Thx.
Without knowing more than the basic info you've provided, sounds like you're transitioning from supported to competitive employment. Sheltered employment has traditionally meant that the work took place at an agency facility.
Thx. Competitive is prolly what most of us do. Supported and sheltered is less common, as far as I kno. I wonder why everything has to be complicated though in terms of wording.
What is VR?
Does whatever it is have a website?
