Title: MFP Process Orientation CORE Training: Deskaids and Workworks Employment Manual

Description: Deskaids are quick reference guides or ‘memory joggers.’ A set of five deskaids was prepared for use by MFP field personnel to assist with recall of MFP transition processes and resources.

  • identify the your role in Person-Centered Career Planning;
  • identify three community employment options and two employment service providers;
  • identify qualified vendors and make referrals for the MFP Supported Employment Evaluation (SEE) service; and
  • use the “Employment” deskaid to facilitate a discussion about vocational goals and work incentives.
