Good resource Jan. 24 2008
By T. DeLisle - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a new employment rep for people with disabilities, this guide does a great job of going over the basics of forming relationships with the job seeker as well as potential employers. I was impressed with the respectful language the authors used, as well. I know I will go back to it again and again.

FINALLY!!!! April 6 2010
By Katie Reuter - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have been an employment specialist/career counselor/job developer for the last two years and have continually referenced the Job Developers Handbook. To date it seems to be the most comprehensive, strength-based, and creative manual that I have found. I love the process they have laid out and have found the instructions clear and easy to follow. All of their techniques are followed with statistics and facts that enable job developers to really have a solid informational base. In these tough economic times this easy to follow guide is even more important if we ever want the people we support to find long-term employment.

an excellent resource Oct. 25 2009
By Milton S. Tyree - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Over the last 30 years, much has been learned about ways to support people with disabilities in work. Unfortunately, there are not enough conversations about getting good, personalized, fitting jobs -- rather than a "placement," or a "slot." Written by people who've been along for the ride, this book does much to help fill the void -- telling us about positive possibilities through discovery, customized employment, resource ownership, informational interviewing, business partnerships... Hope many buy it, and use its ideas!

Perfect for my new position June 28 2013
By Lizzygrrl - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I work at a clubhouse (with mentally ill) with a restaurant attached and was asked to fill in the job developer position while they found someone full time. I was flattered at their confidence but insecure about my knowledge. This book got me enthused and educated, so much so that they are actually making me business cards with the title. I work in vocational rehab, so the first half was mostly for me, but I passed it on to my colleague who is in full on supported employment and she is loving it. Im buying another one for myself because i miss it so much. The suggestions about discovery have been the most beneficial.

The Job Developers Handbook Aug. 10 2007
By Brian C. Deatley - Published on
Format: Paperback
The handbook provides critical information for anyone interested in assiting persons w/disabilities with employment or career guidance. Well organized and written, the book includes contributions from professionals who have long been engaged in providing direct employment services to persons with disabilities. The book is what the subtitle suggest- practical tactics that stregthren the skill sets for a variety of persons interested in reversing years of chronic unemployment for folks with disabilities. I especially appreciated the details targeting working with families and in gaining organization commitment to customize job options for persons traditionally relegated to workshops or minimum wage jobs
