Measuring and supporting improvements in occupational performance and satisfaction
Goal setting and self-reflection (including self-instruction, self-monitoring and self-reinforcement) are important skills for everyone on their journey to employment. Students with disabilities who leave school with the ability to goal set and self-reflect are twice as likely as their peers who have not learned these skills to be employed one year after graduation (Wehmeyer & Palmer, 2003).
In Worktopia, participants rate their performance and satisfaction on individual goals that they identify at the outset of the program, and again at the end of the program. These goals may target areas such as communication, pre-employment, and responsibility, to name a few.
