This resource/training document addresses innovative employment strategies for individuals with disabilities and their implications for rehabilitation, and provides information on model programs to assist state rehabilitation agencies, employers, and potential employers to identify effective strategies and networks to develop cooperative programs for placing persons who are disabled in gainful employment. The document is designed to illustrate the benefits of collaboration and networking in the areas of employment services and increased quality employment opportunities for persons with disabilities. The document begins with a history of the evolution of employment services in rehabilitation. It then reviews challenges facing rehabilitation agencies and discusses approaches to the delivery of employment services. Strategies in employer services are described, such as disability awareness, employment options, marketing outreach, accommodations, disability management, career development, accessibility, safety, and follow up. A final chapter outlines use of the document, and appendixes list study group members. (Contains approximately 40 references.) (JDD)
