The Cumulative Effect of Natural Support Strategies and Social Skills Instruction on the Integration of a Worker in Supported Employment.
Storey, Keith; Garff, Jennifer T.
Journal of Vocational Rehabilitation, v9 n2 p143-52 Oct 1997
An intervention had three phases: (1) a worker who was taught instructional skills then taught a disabled worker a new task; (2) the nondisabled workers encouraged others to interact with the disabled worker; and (3) the disabled worker was taught appropriate conversational exchanges. Coworker instruction alone did not increase the disabled worker's social integration until the social skills were taught. (SK)
