Employment and People with disability
The article only focuses the need for employment access to persons with disabilities other physical disabilities. More attention is paid on those suffering from psychiatric disabilities like depression, schizophrenia, etc. The One-Stop Career Center system does not seem to cater for the needs of the physically disabled people. According to Orentlicher (2008), person-centered planning is considered a value-driven approach to services to individuals with disabilities. This approach is carried out under the philosophy of inclusion and normalization.
