Employment Tools for Self-Advocates

Why This Is Important

Providing tools useful to people with disabilities is important because it allows them to take control of finding a job that matches their interests, going through the application and interview process, and do what it takes to be successful in a job. Some of the things that help people with disabilities take greater control of their employment is information about assessment, personal-budgets, self-management, social capital, family roles and support strategies.

The information in this department includes products developed specifically for use by people with disabilities, but there are also products that will be helpful to family members and professionals. There are a variety of products because some people learn best by reading through material, while others find it more helpful to read stories about people like themselves who are successfully employed.
