Introducing a Professional’s Technique to People with Disabilities.
Developing resolutions to difficult employment situations and supporting work skills.
(From an article in the Yomiuri Newspaper on June 30, 2009) [July 21, 2009]
Employment opportunities for people with disabilities have been significantly affected due to the economy crisis. However, some efforts to progress the development of work skills for people with disabilities have continued. One such program that exists does not provide employment for the challenged but instead helps them to improve their vocational skills by providing facilities and know-how through sponsoring corporations and support through the efforts of professionals.
