Intended for use with business and industry personnel, the resource directory is part of a kit designed to demonstrate how individuals with disabilities and older persons can be assimilated successfully into the labor force. The first chapter provides an overview of employment projects with specific emphasis on jobs that may provide potential for persons with special needs. This chapter also lists about 55 references and provides an appended listing of sample jobs with potential for persons with special needs. The second chapter identifies some of the programs, models, and innovations that industries have used to successfully employ persons with disabilities. These include competitive employment, supported employment, job placement programs, work stations or enclaves in industry, mobile work crews, and affirmative industries. Chapter 3 describes companies and model programs that have been successful in employing older workers. Models include part time employment, job re-design and job sharing, retraining, transition to retirement, and full time employment. Chapter 4 lists resources that can provide information about various types of adaptations and accommodations as well as companies and organizations that supply information about employment of persons with special needs.
