We present an embedding scheme for the locally self-consistent method to study disordered electron systems. We test this method in a tight-binding basis and apply it to the single band Anderson model. The local interaction zone is used to efficiently compute the local Green's function of a supercell embedded into a local typical medium. We find a quick convergence as the size of the local interaction zone which reduces the computational costs as expected. This method captures the Anderson localization transition and accurately predicts the critical disorder strength. The present work opens the path towards the development of a typical medium embedding scheme for the O(N) multiple scattering methods.
