In It for the Long Haul: Long-Term Supports and Employment 


Space is limited. There is no cost to register for this webinar.

While there is a lot of enthusiasm and talk about Employment First as a philosophy for youth and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, how do we ensure the outcome of paid community-based employment for people with ongoing support needs when many of these people don't have access to long-term supports?

This webinar will emphasize the importance of getting to know job seekers through the process of Discovery in order to identify each individual's ideal characteristics of employment. This will guide job developers to:

  • Match individuals to employment that leads to their most independent and competent performance on the job;
  •  Understand the complexity of the individual's ongoing support needs in order to creatively plan to meet those needs; and
  • Identify strategies to support job seekers at work beyond having a job coach provide one-to-one support (for example, negotiating supports within a work environment, using Social Security Administration work incentives to pay for supports, or using various assistive technology to provide the needed supports). 

Join presenters from Montana Vocational Rehabilitation and the Rural Institute on Disabilities for a discussion of this timely and important topic.
