Focus on job interview skills. Objective: Prepare students with significant learning and behavioral disabilities, cognitive challenges, and physical disabilities for post-school work opportunities. Job-related social and self-management skills are essential for students with special needs. Workers with disabilities regularly lose jobs because of difficulties with social situations in job settings. To be successful in getting and keeping a job, students with disabilities need interview skills, social skills in a variety of areas, and most of all preparedness for the many and varied challenges of a job setting. As a result, they need lots of time to learn and practice vocational skills. This curriculum teaches such competencies as the ability to self-examine one's strengths and weaknesses, creative problem-solving skills, self-confidence and assertiveness, advocacy skills, and accepting responsibility. Coauthored by speech-language pathologist Corinne Thomas-Kersting and special education teacher and occupational therapist Dona Schumacher.

Corinne Thomas-Kersting, CCC-SLP I am the program assistant for Portland Public Schools' Community Transition Program and have worked as a speech-language pathologist in the public schools for twenty-five years. I have enjoyed servicing students of all ages in a wide variety of settings and programs, and the transition years have always been especially appealing to me. I appreciate being around young people as they explore their identities and prepare for good lives as adults. Dona Schumacher, OTR/L I have practiced in the field of special education for thirty years. I was a special education teacher for the first ten years, and then an occupational therapist for Portland Public Schools. I am always learning; every day I learn something new from my students and my colleagues. This workbook is a part of that great learning journey. It's a work in progress. We first began to develop the Get a Job ideas and materials while working collaboratively with a high school life skills and transition program in 1990. Working with this curriculum has proven to be an exciting opportunity to work closely with teams and refine our skills as educators.
