Understanding Community Based Employment and Follow-Up Services.
Botterbusch, Karl F.
This publication reviews current literature in community-based employment. It offers rehabilitation facilities and other programs a practical book on how to provide long-term follow-up services in a variety of settings and using a variety of models. Section I is a limited review of current literature on transition employment and supported work in general and on providing follow-up services in particular. Chapters 1 and 2 define and describe the train-place and place-train models for providing rehabilitation services and variations of the place-train model. Chapter 3 deals with assessment of the worker before and during placement and training processes. Chapter 4 presents reasons why long-term follow-up services are a vital component of supported employment programs. Chapter 5 offers specific methods and procedures to increase the effectiveness of follow-up services. Section II describes four programs offering integrated follow-up services. They illustrate exemplary work programs within different settings: supported work services to persons who are mentally retarded in an urban setting, to persons who are mentally ill in an urban setting, and in a small rural facility serving mainly developmentally disabled persons and transition programs within a community college serving small city and rural areas. The document concludes with 84 references. (YLB)
