This makes it difficult for them to learn & independently perform even basic sequential tasks that constitute most job roles.Till now this challenge is addressed by allocating job coach/ buddy, who provide continues guidance and support at workplace. This highly resource intensive model restricts them to repetitive task (instead of full job role) limiting their career opportunities. This innovation will enable a PID with greater autonomy, efficiency, consistency and accuracy in performing routine tasks at home and at workplace ; thus building confidence and self-esteem amongst them. It will open the job market for people with ID with more opportunities incl. more versatile roles since, the learning curve of the user will be steep and each placement will lead to not just a job but a career opportunity.
