WHAT SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE:
Employment services through Boulder County Enterprises include:
For employers of eligible individuals:
DO I QUALIFY FOR HELP:
Contact the Developmental Disabilities Center, 1343 Iris, Boulder, CO 441-1090 for initial eligibility determination. Individuals generally are eligible for services if they have been found to have a developmental disability consistent with the State definition and have been targeted for State and/or Medicaid day service funding.
WHO DO I CONTACT:
Interested individuals should call the Boulder office at 449-1632 to schedule an interview with Bob Lawhead, Executive Director, or contact Marianne Nick, DDC Case Management Director at 441-1268.
HOW DOES IT WORK:
Initial eligibility process followed by consideration for State or Medicaid day service funding (note: currently there is a waiting list for this funding). When employment is the goal a job search strategy is developed based on job history, preferences, and interests. Assistance is then provided in locating a job and recommending necessary accommodations to the employer. When employment is secured we remain on site with the employee until employment stabilizes, and then continue to provide follow-up assistance to support the success of the placement.
WHAT ARE MY CHANCES FOR SUCCESS:
At the end of 1993, Boulder County Enterprises staff was supporting 110 people with developmental disabilities and their employers. Approximately 60 people were awaiting employment at that time.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST:
If an individual with a developmental disability is not found eligible for services or has to wait for funding, the private party option is available. Service fees may be paid by Colorado Rehabilitation Services or paid directly by the individual. Fees for employment services during the 1994 fiscal year are $30.00 per hour. These fees reflect the actual cost of providing these services.
