Join the Collaboration to Promote Self-Determination (CPSD) for a briefing and discussion on the recently released final report developed and published by the Advisory Committee on Increasing Competitive Integrated Employment for Individuals with Disabilities (ACICIEID). The purpose of the briefing is to provide a summary of the final report and to facilitate an initial dialogue concerning its contents. This briefing will be held on Thursday, October 13th, 2:00 – 4:00 PM, at the National Youth Transition Center, 2013 H. St., NW.
This past month, ACICIEID released the committee’s final report. The committee’s final report consists of recommendations on practices and policies that would result in increased opportunities for integrated competitive employment for youth and adults with disabilities and responsible reforms aimed at decreasing the utilization of 14c waivers allowing for the compensation of sub-minimum wage.
During the committee’s two year tenure, CPSD and many CPSD members participated in the committee’s public meetings by providing testimony concerning a number of areas of expertise related to competitive integrated employment and the importance of moving away from the practice of sub-minimum wage.
All are welcome to participate in this discussion to help determine priority areas of implementation and strategies for driving implementation of the Advisory Committee recommendations for reform. Please RSVP by Monday, October 10, 2016.
