Discovery Strategy to Facilitate Successful Employment

Discovery Strategy to Facilitate Successful Employment
Michael Callahan's Discovery Strategy, www.employmentforall.org, is designed to facilitate successful employment for students and adults with disabilities.  According to this model the main emphasis when facilitating employment for the persons served should be on who the person served is and what tasks the person is already doing that is marketable and can be paid for.  This approach is a dramatic departure from the traditional models for employment that concentrate on changing the person to do certain jobs.  Discovery strategy can be used to customize a position for the person served as well as for the employer.
