The Collaboration to Promote Self-Determination invites you to attend a briefing:
Presuming Employability and Best Practices under WIOA:
Seamless Transition to Work for 14 – 24 Year-Olds with Significant Disabilities
June 14, 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
188 Russell Senate Office Building
Author: Rick Luecking, Ed.D.
Moderator: Michael Morris, CPSD Board, executive director, NDI
Panelists: Teriana Cox, Washington, DC and Rebecca Salon, director, Project LEAD
Emerging research and models of transition to employment illustrate the possibilities of insuring that successful adult employment can be more the norm than the exception for youth with significant disabilities. Evolving federal transition and disability employment policy also presumes and supports that all individuals with disabilities are employable.
Join CPSD as they release The Implications of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act for Seamless Transition of Youth with Significant Disabilities. The briefing will discuss what a seamless transition to competitive, integrated employment looks like for youth with significant disabilities.
RSVP by June 10 to Grace Shamlian: GShamlian@wpllc.net.
Light refreshments will be served.
The briefing is made possible through the generous support of the Ruderman Family Foundation.
