Description

This book presents practical discussions of best practice techniques for job development along with reproducible forms for use in the field. The purpose of the book is to systematize the job development process by sharing replicable processes for transition-aged youth and adults with significant support needs and illustrating several urban and rural approaches to creative employment (including self-employment as an alternate strategy) that blend funding streams, utilize SSA Work Incentives, and capitalize on the hidden jobs in small neighborhood companies that are often overlooked in favor of large companies.
