Self-employment is a realistic employment option for all people, regardless of disability. With an emphasis on the involvement of community programs and school transition staff, this book focuses on how to identify and utilize the critical business supports necessary for the development of self-employment opportunities for people with disabilities. Specific topics covered include the role of community rehabilitation personnel and vocational rehabilitation counselors and methods for using programs such as Plans for Achieving Self Support and Ticket to Work. While this book provides practical advice for helping people with developmental disabilities become successfully self-employed, other books on disability and work tend to examine theoretical issues and stop short of providing useful strategies.

As a benefits analyst, this book is an invaluable aide for me in developing business plans and corresponding Plans for Achieving Self Support. Dave and Cary take a very complex subject and reduce it to its most simple components. Chapter 6 in particular clearly identifies the complex relationship between PASS plans and business plans. The section in Chapter six on 'two sets of books', alone is more than worth the price of the book. Thank you David and Cary - outstanding effort-someone had to do it - you did!!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
