About Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS)

Before you finish high school, pre-employment transition services (Pre-ETS) can help you get ready for a job. These services include:

Supported Employment

Supported Employment (SE) is an employment service for people with developmental disabilities. Individuals who are enrolled in SE are classified into two groups:


Individualized Placements-Individuals who possess the skills and abilities to work independently with minimal job coaching support.


Group Placements-Individuals who benefit from full-time job coaching support.


Once enrolled, each Program Participant is assigned a Case Manager for job placement services. The Case Manager will assist the Program Participant with job searches, applying for employment opportunities and securing a job. Once employed, the Program Participant will receive on-the-job training and support by an Employment Training Specialist (ETS). The Program Participant may also receive mobility training if funded by their referring agency. This service teaches participants how to use public transportation to and from work.

Accessing Services

Referrals are made to our Program Coordinator. The Coordinator will discuss the program and do a pre-screening interview. If interested in Supported Employment, please contact the Program Coordinator at 504.662.8173


Program Participants must be referred by Louisiana Rehabilitation Services.


There is no cost to Program Participants, families or care providers. Louisiana Rehabilitation Services make referrals to the Supported Employment Program and pays for the services offered by Take the Lead NOLA.
