Discovering Personal Genius
What is Discovery?
Discovering Personal Genius (DPG) is an employment planning tool and model for individual employment evaluation that results in a comprehensive vocational profile.
Discovery uses a person-centered community-based assessment approach that focuses on observation and trial in real-time community activities to determine the strengths, skills and interests of the focus person. It also includes exploration through informational interviews of potential employers in the community.
Self-Guided DPG allows a family or individual to work through the evaluation and planning processes on their own with the help of a facilitator or coach at key points in the process.
Who Should Attend? This training is appropriate for parents/family members of transition-age youth or young adults, teachers, vocational rehabilitation professionals, and others who support individuals with disabilities to gain employment in their community.
