This course explores the factors that influence successful employment of people with disabilities in the current labor market. Emphasis is placed on meeting the needs of both the worker with a disability who is seeking employment and the employer who creates employment opportunities for workers. Students are introduced to business and social forces which shape the labor market and how to use those forces in employment planning with workers with disabilities. Strategies for doing employer development, job development, and job placement in public and proprietary sectors are examined. Students will learn job seeking skills and how to design employment supports for workers with disabilities.
