Competitive integrated employment has proven to be a powerful means of helping people feel more productive, have higher self-esteem, increase community inclusion and generally improve overall health. As employment rates remain low, it is critical we increase expectations for all people, including people with significant and multiple impacts of disability. In this seminar, we present how people who experience significant disabilities such as intellectual disability, autism, and traumatic brain injury can benefit from a real job in the workforce. Strategies to support success, such as supported employment, employment networking, and mentoring will be discussed and presented through instructional videos and case studies.

Learning Objectives:
After the completion of the webinar, participants will be able to

  • Describe how work empowers individuals with mental health conditions and developmental disabilities
  • Learn how service providers can locate and utilize resources in the community for competitive employment opportunities
  • Understand how workplace supports can increase job satisfaction and overall health

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