Choose and Take Action is a set of instructional activities designed to teach students with moderate to severe cognitive disabilities self-determination skills to introduce students to a variety of jobs and career possibilities and help them to identify what is most important to them about a job. When participating in the activities students make choices between videos of jobs, try those choices in the community, evaluate the experience, and make new choices based on what they learned. The activities include interactive software sessions, classroom activities, and community experiences. By completing the full program cycle a number of times, students will begin to identify some of their employment interests and beginning job skills.
