This is the fourth of five webinars in the TACE Webinar Series: Helping Your Team Improve Employment Outcomes for Individuals with the Most Significant Disabilities.

The webinar will present the steps of customized job development and what a vocational rehabilitation (VR) supervisor needs to know whether their staff is job developing themselves or contracting with a community rehabilitation provider (CRP).  Topics to be addressed will include:

  • The difference between labor market job development and customized job development.
  • The creation of a plan that denotes actual employers to be contacted and timelines.
  • Representing the individual with a portfolio.
  • Monitoring the job development to ensure it meets both the employer’s needs and the job seekers contributions.

The expected outcome is that supervisors will have enough information to understand how a customized job is developed and how to monitor the progress of the job development.
