We provide phone, webinar, and in-person consultation services. Technical assistance can be tailored to the specific needs of any project at the agency, state, or country.

For Agencies we provide:

  • IPS supported employment training
  • 2-day IPS fidelity review & report
  • IPS program consultation
  • Case consultation
  • 2.5 day IPS leadership training

In addition to these supports, representatives from states, countries, and regions have access to implementation planning, 1-day supervisor training, and quarterly meetings with an IPS supervisor.

The materials were great and the trainer provided examples that brought the concepts to life for real world application.
