Transition to Integrated Employment Brief: Discovery and Customized Employment

Rhode Island

“Rhode Island College and the Paul V. Sherlock Center on Disabilities hosted the third of a series of public forums and workshops pertaining to integrated employment. Michael Callahan from Marc Gold and Associates (MG&A) led a day-long workshop focused on implementing discovery and customized employment. Customized Employment is a proven alternative to the typical supported employment approach of applying for competitive, demand job openings, an approach that tends not to work for many people with significant Intellectual and Developmental disabilities (ID/DD). This Brief highlights strategies, tools, and a variety of free resources to help you get started with the discovery and customized employment process.”
