Jobsupport is a highly successful specialist open employment provider which began as a demonstration project in 1986 for people with moderate intellectual disability. Jobsupport operates throughout Sydney and in the northern suburbs of Melbourne.
Jobsupport’s approach to training people with intellectual disability is based on an applied behaviour analysis model developed in the United States. The early demonstration set out to show that with the right type of supports people with higher levels of intellectual disability could succeed in the open labour market.
