Critical Steps in Vocational Training that Lead to Successful Employment.
This document provides a day-by-day description of the process of training and placing an employee with mental retardation in a job as a janitor in a grocery store. The analysis shows that successful job placement of a student with limited capability subject requires thorough planning and research into all factors that have an impact on successful employment. Family dynamics must be assessed and family support is crucial. Creating support from the employer and working with the student in the training phase also are important. Because this student has such severe problems, intense follow-up will be needed. Such follow-up will help handle problems promptly and encourage the employer to allow future job placements of students in the program. The document includes a task analysis checklist of the jobs performed by the student. (KC)
