Job Designs: A Community Based Program for Students with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders.
Lehman, Constance
Teaching Research Newsletter, Jul 1992
The Job Designs Project, a 3-year federally funded project, provides students (ages 16-22) at an Oregon residential treatment center for youth with emotional and behavioral disorders with supported paid employment in the community. The project has provided job supported employment services to 36 students working in such positions as restaurant bus person, shop assistant, sales assistant, laborer, stock person, pet bather, tax librarian, janitor, and movie theater attendant. Successfully placed individuals had backgrounds including burglary, drug and alcohol abuse, sex abuse, and various mental disorders. It is reported that the 36 students had a total of 60 job placements of which 44 were considered successful. The role of the program's two vocational specialists is emphasized. Third party evaluation and employer surveys as well as evaluation of the long term adjustment of former participants strongly supported the program's approach. A resource list lists 11 references, 9 materials, and 12 recent publications by Teaching Research Staff. (DB)
