Janet Shouse from the Vanderbilt-Kennedy Center was a recent guest on the MHDD Crossroads Podcast. She talked to us about her career path, her role as program coordinator for the IDD Toolkit, www.iddtoolkit.org,- which she helped develop. This toolkit is an online resource for medical providers to better serve adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Janet also serves with TennesseeWorks, a partnership of state agencies and disability organizations aiming to improve the employment landscape for people with disabilities. As part of that work, she writes and edits a blog called “Rise to Work,” www.tennesseeworks.org/blog/. Janet is also involved with the new multi-site Center for Dignity in Healthcare for People with Disabilities, and she is the study coordinator for a Department of Defense Autism Research Grant to create a provider-focused training program to serve adults with Autism spectrum disorder. We were thrilled to have Janet on the podcast and to learn more about the various projects and resources she has been involved in over the years. Take a listen to the podcast we did with her and be sure to subscribe and share.
