Why Choose CDERP

Disability Employment is evolving rapidly under the influence of the NDIS and DES and their unique challenges. At CDERP we use an Applied Research framework and our global network and experience to deliver real-world solutions, that are unique to your organisation and client demands.



“Discovery is not……spending time on a laptop computer, administering assessments, taking notes, using checklists, ranking competencies or comparing. Discovery does not include predicting or guessing what a person can do or identifying jobs that are available in the labor market.”

“I really like your Job Development Manual. Informative but not too long. Practical, but well grounded in best practices. And I really like the conversational tone of it.”

“I just think that the impact of this first part of Discovery on you is quite significant and I would be right in saying that the outcomes that you would assume for clients would be so different to what you might have considered in the past.”
