It also gives human service agencies the tools to play a powerful role in the process by offering self-employment programs.
Doyel covers little-known opportunities and resources in growing a business that she has found in the for-profit and nonprofit worlds as well as the public sector. She also offers tips on the role of the Internet, both as a way of doing business and as a source of business start-up information. The book also includes four profiles of individuals with disabilities and their business plans.
The book is aimed at people with all types of disabilities and also at the professionals who can help them in their careers, such as vocational rehabilitation counselors, employment specialists, job developers and supported employment program managers.
