I am teaching a CBI (Community Based instruction) class of 14 moderate-severely disabled students ages 18-22. Some of my students fall on the higher-functioning side on the autism spectrum while others are non-verbal and others have wheelchairs. Sometimes it seems like the ONLY emphasis of the program is employment. I know some could perform support jobs (eg, fast-food, Target, Petco) on at least a part-time basis. Though other students who are not able to communicate might not find/keep even supported employment. I feel I might be doing the more severe students a disservice by using only the "employment or nothing" curriculum. Perplexing. Any help appreciated.
