Where: Online/Web-based


Sponsored By:

Administration for Community Living (ACL)

Description:

(An optional Q&A Session will be held from 3:00 – 3:30 pm Eastern time for participants)

Competitive employment has proven to be a powerful means of helping individuals feel more productive, have higher self-esteem, increase community inclusion, and generally improve overall health. In this webinar, we will discuss how many unemployed individuals with developmental disabilities such as autism and traumatic brain injury can benefit from a job in the workforce. Strategies such as supported employment, employment networking, and mentoring will be presented through instructional videos and case studies to demonstrate the process of empowerment and the feelings of independence that work brings. There is strong evidence-based research to support empowerment through work.

This webinar is cosponsored by the AUCD Mental Health Special Interest Group.
