Price: $49.95

The Rehabilitation Act and IDEA 1997 regulations require that self-determination be a part of daily practice in supported employment and transition programs. Education and employment professionals will learn how to make that happen in this easy-to-understand book, the first to offer step-by-step strategies and processes for helping people with mild, moderate, or severe disabilities make their own employment choices.

First, readers will get a detailed overview of the authors’ Self-Directed Supported Employment (SDSE) model, in which the individual actively participates in all aspects of assessing interests and skills, finding a job, and evaluating and keeping it. Then, they’ll get the materials they need to guide individuals through this process, including over 75 pages of photocopiable forms (in illustrated and written formats), sample resumes, case studies of people who have used the program, "what if" tables that address difficult scenarios, and information on requirements and accommodations.

Developed through a decade of research and field-testing with over 700 people, this practical book will make readers better guides and advocates for individuals as they become successful at the job of their choice.
