Working hard

Because October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month, CeDIR would like to emphasize the presence of people with disabilities in the workforce.

IIDC has a specific center dedicated to the topic (the Center on Community Living and Careers) that can provide information about employment.

We also have numerous resources in our collection about employment. Here is a small sample of our newest materials:

  • Griffin, C. (2007). The job developer's handbook: Practical tactics for customized employment. Baltimore, MD: Paul H. Brookes Pub. Co.
  • Riley, C.A. (2006). Disability and business: Best practices and strategies for inclusion. Hanover : University Press of New England.
  • Synatschk, K.O. (2007). Employment and career planning. Austin, TX: PRO-ED.
  • Wehman, P. (2007). Real work for real pay: Inclusive employment for people with disabilities. Baltimore, MD: Paul H. Brookes Pub. Co.

As always, if you live in Indiana, contact CeDIR by phone at 800-437-7924 or via e-mail at cedir (at) indiana.edu to borrow these items.
