Supported Employment in Illinois: Compendium of Program Profiles. Volume 6, 1988-1989.
Seta, Julie, Comp.
The compendium presents a view of 70 programs participating in the Illinois supported employment initiative. A preliminary chapter analyzes the implementation of supported employment in Illinois. It provides a brief history of the Illinois supported employment initiative, describes the Illinois Supported Employment Project, examines the impact of model program development, and describes research at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Profiles of the 70 programs are then presented, describing their purpose, focus of programmatic activity, conversion plan, program-developed products, and outcomes. Ten of the programs, identified as providing exemplary supported employment services, are further described, each with information concerning integration, co-worker involvement, and degree of implementation, and each with a profile of an actual supported employment client. The client profiles offer a look at the larger impact of supported employment on the lives of the 10 individuals in order to improve understanding of what constitutes quality of life for individuals with severe disabilities.
