Vocational training and job readiness via simulated environments

Flight simulators and similar virtual environments have been used for decades for technical training. Let's develop comparable technologies for CWDs. Children interact with simulated environments all the time in their gaming experiences. These should be applied to fundamental job skills as well as to work-related social/emotional on-the-job experiences. Example: Working in a supermarket, what to do when there is a spill? How to handle the frustrated customer?
