Individual and Family Support Services. Ohio's Competency Analysis Profile.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Vocational Instructional Materials Lab.
Developed through a modified DACUM (Developing a Curriculum) process involving business, industry, labor, and community agency representatives in Ohio, this document is a comprehensive and verified employer competency profile for individual and family support services occupations. The list contains units (with and without subunits), competencies, and competency builders that identify the skills needed to enter these occupations. This competency list may be used only as an additional component to two other lists, "Early Childhood Education and Care" and/or "Hospitality and Facility Care Services." The occupational, academic, and employability skills for this occupation or occupational area are included. Within the outline are three levels of items: core, advancing, and futuring. Core items identify the knowledge, skills, and attitudes essential for entry-level employment. These items are required to be taught and will be the basis for questions on the state vocational competency tests. Advancing items identify the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to advance in the occupation; futuring items identify the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to enter and remain in a given occupation 3 to 4 years from now. Titles of the four units are as follows: individual and family care fundamentals; individual and family daily living assistance; individual and family recreational and social activities; and employability skills.
