Community Living Skills Guide: Job Orientation.
Powers, Judi; Holm, Karen
One of twenty course guides in the Community Living Skills Guide for the College for Living series, this document provides guidelines and workbook activities for the course, Job Orientation and Training Program. The series of courses for developmentally disabled adults is intended to supplement residential programs and to aid in orienting institutionalized persons to eventual integration into the community. This course is specifically for persons ready for employment, already employed, and/or highly motivated in learning about obtaining and retaining a job. Goals and objectives include making the student independent and aware of skills needed in finding and holding employment. Emphasis is on social interaction with supervisors and co-workers. Objectives and activities are presented for each of these eight steps: exploration, development of employment opportunity skills, applying for employment, handicapping conditions, personal hygiene and grooming, interviewing techniques, separation and orientation, and job retention. Other guides in the series and related documents (a volunteer training workshop packet and curriculum guide for fourteen courses) are available separately. (See note.) (YLB)
