How to Teach Self-instruction of Job Skills
American Association on Mental Retardation, Jan 1, 1994 - Social Science - 44 pages
The gap between vocational training & independent employment is often wide & deep. One of the biggest problems confronting those who have been trained to enter independent employment is learning to solve the myriad of small problems that come their way everyday. They often depend too much on trainers or job coaches to solve their problems & manage their behaviors. Agran & Moore's HOW TO TEACH SELF-INSTRUCTION OF JOB SKILLS describes strategies to enhance the problem-solving skills of learners with mental retardation by teaching them to use self-instruction or self-directed verbal commands. This book describes procedures for teaching self-instruction & provides sample scripts for common tasks. HOW TO TEACH SELF-INSTRUCTION OF JOB SKILLS is a "must-have" book for all who are interested in making that leap to independent employment a success. This book is the first in a series-Innovations-which compiles & synthesizes key research findings on a single topic into a readable, practical, attractive publication. Innovations interprets the latest research findings in practical, clear prose with a bold new design format. This new series is aimed at very busy practitioners who need to integrate the latest research findings into their programs, but lack the time & resources to read & analyze numerous professional journals. The goal of Innovations is to serve the practitioner by making research accessible, practical, & available quickly. Other new titles include RECOGNIZING CHOICES IN COMMUNITY SETTINGS BY PEOPLE WITH SIGNIFICANT DISABILITIES by Philip J. Belflore & Wanda Toro-Zambrana, & EFFECTIVE & EFFICIENT USE OF STUDENT PERFORMANCE DATA by Leslie Farlow & Martha Snell.
