Redi-Set-Go is a three-week intervention of confidence and self-esteem building, disclosure, accommodation and disability awareness. It includes the development of a creative project to reflect the experiences of each participant.
The first week consists of confidence building modules, identification of strengths and weakness, goal setting, and enhanced communication skills. This leads into the second week, where the participants investigate and explore the topic of disclosure surrounding personal disabilities, barriers and limitations. In an open discussion forum we will discuss how to communicate information to a potential employer, when to disclose information, and if disclosure is necessary in for them. Furthering the discovery, they will examine all the methods of accommodation available to people in a similar position as they are.
The final week will be an expression of the total experience of the participants. They use creativity to articulate their personal journey, as well as to give them an outlet for creative expression. The project will consist of creative writing and graphic or visual art to create a framed account of their experiences with the Redi-Set-Go program.
By the end of the three week session the participant, with the help of the coordinator and group members will be able to identify their next steps and how they will gain those next steps.

“The journal writing allowed me to express and ‘voice’ my feelings, fears and future plans.”
“Disclosure is a big issue for people with disabilities, and a learned a couple really good things about when, how and if I should tell my potential boss. It is still not easy but I feel more confident than before.”
