The Working series sets the bar for teaching job skills to students with mild to severe developmentally disabilities.
These acclaimed programs use VideoModeling to cover everything today’s students need to know about landing a job, from interview conduct and self-presentation skills, to keeping that job by getting along with the boss and co-workers. Interviews with employers and counselors advising on how to present one’s self to best advantage are reinforced with the famous NotSmart/JobSmart scenarios that vividly and graphically show students how wrong one can go in the workplace — and how to get it right.
