Opening Doors to Employment, Planning For Life After High School

Students may go in many different directions after graduating from high school. Some students choose to go right into the workforce. Oth- ers may choose to go on to postsecondary education to enhance their career choices (see Opening Doors to Postsecondary Education and Training Guide). Some go into the military. Students with disabilities have all these options too.

This guide deals with the first option, employment. Employment includes many kinds of choices from jobs to careers, with or without support of outside agencies.

This guide is designed as a guide to help students with disabilities take another step in preparing for “life after high school.” The activities in this guide should be completed with a parent, teacher, or guidance counselor.
