Supported Employment Implementation Issues. A Summary of Discussions from the VCU RRTC-Employment Network Issues Forum: Future Directions for Supported Employment.
Barcus, Michael, Ed.; And Others
This monograph aims to provide a blueprint for: (1) expanded supported employment implementation for individuals with disabilities; and (2) improvement in service delivery practices. It contains edited summaries of the discussions of five working groups from a major forum on national supported employment issues which was convened in Williamsburg, Virginia, in May 1988. The five working groups covered: systems change/conversion, integration and empowerment, in-state economic development and marketing, long-term funding, and technical assistance and staff development. Each working group identified issues relevant to its topic; identified components of each issue; and specified progress, resources, and challenges related to the issues. An introductory paper describes how the issues forum was designed and how topical areas and formats were determined. A concluding paper notes that the issues forum marked a change in expectations from beginning a social change initiative to extending the reality of integrated jobs with long-term support to all persons with severe disabilities.
