It was very well done. I loved the one on customized employment. I do recommend that you not talk so much about one provider (Briggs) and instead, be more general and say there are providers in every state. You should market the course to VR in every state and to schools for use in their transition training.
The course was very engaging and you inserted a lot of humor. You gave good advice about whether to disclose your disability, and following up after the interview. I would recommend this to any high school student with a disability looking for a job, as well as those who are just starting out on their job search. The course was excellent and broken up into manageable pieces, time-wise. I appreciated that the closed captioning was built into the course.
I liked the fact that it was self-advocate to self-advocate. That’s pretty unusual. Most courses on this topic highlight experts without disabilities teaching self-advocates. You’re personal experiences were helpful and interesting. One thing that you might want to think about is focusing on a specific provider of customized employment services. This could be taken as an endorsement. Also, you might want to encourage the learner to check out some providers in their local area.
