Drawing on work within the disability field, this session will look specifically at finding and developing a job for individuals that you support.   Looking at the actual approach or strategy for taking what you have learned about the individual through the engagement and discovery process and identifying potential opportunities with employers in the community.  We will look at the importance of understanding the employer’s perspective and needs as well as those of the individual you support.  We will also talk about using a business approach to job finding which could help increase your success. 

Session Objectives:

  1. Identify the importance of engaging employers as our ‘other’ clients in the employment process.
  2. Focus on examples of turning strengths into opportunities within a business
  3. Articulate issues around possible workplace accommodations for the person you are supporting in a new job.
  4. Assess the possibilities of using tools such as job proposals to help achieve employment outcomes.
