Reorganize community functional service modules, construct cognitive services for vocational rehabilitation of mental disorders in care institutions, and improve the level of cognitive vocational rehabilitation for people with disabilities. Integrating the SAPAD model and hierarchical analysis to design and research the process of supported employment for persons with mental disabilities, the study delves into user behaviour, completes the mapping of user's behaviour-object-meaning through the model framework, completes the mapping of meaning-object with core meaning clusters, finds the key behaviour of the user and uncovers the real needs of the user, thus systematically improving the service experience of the childcare institution. The AHP quantitative research method is used to find out the core needs of users and to think about and solve problems in a more objective and comprehensive way. In this way, the SAPAD model is refined and innovations are realised at the methodological level, and finally it is applied to the Mindfulness Supported Disability Service System to provide new ideas for improving the problem of supported employment for people with disabilities.
