Support Co-Worker Guidebook

When creating positions for individuals with multiple disabilities a team approach is sometimes the best option. This team consists of a paid staff person and a person with a disability performing the job tasks together of one job description. This guide explores a) viewing yourself as a co-worker and colleague working along side an individual with a disability; b) enhancing the social integration and interaction of your co-worker with other employees at the jobsite; and c) maximizing participation, independence and productivity to the greatest extent possible. This guide also discusses task adaptation strategies, training techniques and ways to maintain your co-workers' positive work attitude.    Go to the order form
