When employment services incorporate self-management strategies into their supports, job seekers get access to more hours, higher paying jobs, and they tend to learn skills that are transferable to other situations. This 4-week module on self-management strategies focuses on tools that a person can use independently, sometime interdependently, to keep themselves on track. In this module, we will focus on a range of self-management solutions so that you can access tools that will work for anyone and everyone you support.
This course begins with an overview of community employment, including current social, political, and economic changes that are leading to expansion of opportunities for individuals with disabilities.
