East Central Ohio Special Education Regional Resource Center, Dover.
Project Employability (Ohio) was designed to improve the employment skills of low functioning educable mentally retarded and high functioning trainable mentally retarded high school students. The project was implemented through both process and student outcome objectives. A contributing factor to the program's success was its association with a regional resource center. The program consists of six products in book form: "Employability Assessment Instrument,""Employability Curriculum,""Community Job Task Analysis,""Home/School/Work Handbook,""Student Work Performance Handbook," and "Employability Administrative Handbook." Staff development included inservice training, workshops, and meetings with a citizen's advisory panel. Evaluation data support the program's effectiveness in terms of students' knowledge of social and vocational information and gain in number of jobs. (SB)
