Preparing for Employment: On the Home Front
Young people looking for their first jobs may be overwhelmed by the process and seek help from others. Individualized Education Program (IEP) teams can help young people with disabilities develop a plan that includes employment goals. Schools can also help youth develop specific career skills by guiding students to courses needed to enter a particular field, helping students practice interviewing and asking for employment accommodations, or offering work-based learning opportunities.
This issue of the Parent Teacher Conference Handout contains useful information, advise and examples for the parents of your students on how to prepare their children for employment.
