With regard to employment support for people with developmental disabilities, based on the issues that tend to occur in establishing themselves in the workplace, we plan to convey what kind of assessment and support should be provided, specific listening methods, and the direction of support from the perspective of interaction with the work environment. We would like to provide one of many approaches (knowledge and clinical technology) to enhance the effectiveness of employment support.
