One of the most practical employment books available, this forward-thinking guide walks employment specialists step by step through customized job development for people with disabilities, revealing the best ways to build a satisfying, meaningful job around a person's preferences, skills, and goals. Internationally known for their innovative, proactive job development strategies, the authors motivate readers to expand the way they think about employment opportunities and develop creative solutions. Readers will get fresh, proven tips and ideas for every aspect of job development for youth and adults with significant support needs: discovering who the person is and what he or she really wants, ensuring goodness of fit between employer and employee, finding-or creating-"hidden jobs" in smaller companies, empowering people through resource ownership (i.e., investing in resources that employers need), skillfully negotiating job duties while managing conflicts that might arise, creatively maximizing benefits using Social Security work incentives, encouraging family support while respecting the individual as an adult.

Mr. Hammis is Senior Partner at Griffin-Hammis Associates, LLC, a full-service consultancy specializing in building communities of economic cooperation, creating highperformance organizations, and focusing on disability and employment. He maintains an ongoing relationship with the Rural Institute at The University of Montana, wherehe served as Project Director for multiple self-employment, employment, and Social Security outreach training and technical assistance projects, including the Rural Institute's Rural Entrepreneurship and Self-Employment Expansion Design Project. He works with organizations nationally and internationally on self-employment, benefits analysis, supported employment, and employment engineering. Mr. Hammis has worked in supported and self-employment since 1988 and is personally responsible for the implementation of thousands of Plans to Achieve Self-Support leading to employment, self-employment, and enhanced personal resources for people with disabilities. In July 1996, Mr. Hammis received the International Association for Persons in Supported Employment Professional of the Year Award for his "outstanding support and commitment to people with disabilities, especially in the areas of career development and the use of Social Security work incentives."
