Only 1 of every 3 people with disabilities are employed (Institute of Disability, 2017 Annual Report), compared to 3 out of 4 people without disabilities. IDEA stated that the IEP team must prepare students for employment and post-school adult living. How can school-based physical therapists actively participate in the transition process and positively impact the employment potential of our students? This session will provide an assessment framework based on the ICF model to match the student’s strengths, preferences and interests to the current job training options. Free web-based job matching resources, and assessment tools such as Pictorial Interest Inventory (PII), Enderle-Severson Transition Rating Scale (ESTR), and Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) will be discussed. Case studies of students with various functional levels at work sites will be used to highlight the importance of task analysis and ecological assessment. Through collaborative small group discussions, presenters will demonstrate how to develop measurable, result-oriented IEP goals and intervention plans based on the assessment. Participants will leave with concrete examples to promote student’s employability, and will be better equipped with strategies to support students’ transitions toward post-school success.
