Module 1: What is Customised Employment?
Customised Employment is an approach that tailors jobs to fit the unique strengths, interests, and needs of a person with disability, ensuring mutual benefit for both the employee and employer.

Module 2: Discovery
Discovery is the first step in Customised Employment and involves understanding a person's interests, skills, and conditions necessary for them to thrive at work.

Instead, it focuses on understanding their life, activities, and contributions to tailor a job that fits them well.
