SUPPORTED EMPLOYMENT FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITY

SUPPORTED EMPLOYMENT FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITY What is disability? What difficulties do persons with disability face in everyday life? How can we solve these issues? And what can we do to support them? These are the questions we need to answer, not by words but by our actions. The answers to these questions are in relation to the employment of persons with disability. The answers are Supported Employment and Job Coach. JICA (Japan International Corporation Agency) introduced Supported Employment and Job Coach, and conceptual foundations of the Social Model of disability as a new perspective on disability and twin-track approach as a strategic framework of action on disability. The Japanese JICA delegates had a discussion with Ms. Manique Gunaratne to promote Supported Employment in Sri Lanka. The JICA delegates also conducted a Supported Employment workshop at the Ministry of Social Services in January 2020.
