This participant's workbook is one component of an instructional package designed to aid in developing a model employability assessment and planning program for use in rehabilitation and education of persons with disabilities. "An Employability Development Model," outlines the career development and employability development process, major vocational task demands, and major factors influencing completion of vocational task demands. "Designing & Developing an Employability Assessment & Planning Program" offers a blueprint to develop the major components of the program, which include vocational choice, job acquisition, and job retention. Subsequent units focus in more detail on specific vocational choice, job acquisition, and job retention assessment and planning strategies."Strategies for Empowering and Involving Consumers in the Assessment and Planning Process" offers worksheets for examining two strategies: Occupational Choice Strategy (small group approach) and Know Thyself (a one-to-one approach).
