Description:
Vocational training and employment services are the way forward for people with an intellectual disability if they are to achieve full social integration (ILSMH, 1990; Walsh, 1990). In recent years, St. Michael's House, a community-based service for about 1500 adults and children with intellectual disability in the Dublin area, has developed initiatives in vocational training. New elements have emerged and been tested: "supported employment"; job coaches; employment specialists; work-sampling; work experience; employer-based training. Each is likely to play a part in the mix of vocational services available to adults in this decade.
