If you are unable to attend on the scheduled date or if registration closes because the session is full, the Webinar will be recorded and archived to the Transition and Employment Projects website.

This session will introduce individualized and creative strategies that promote access to paid community employment for all students with disabilities, even those in rural remote locations, and those students with a significant impact of disability.   The webinar will also offer ideas and resources to schools that are setting up work experiences in the community for students.  Discussion of how these approaches can blend with transition planning and preparation for all youth and an Employment First philosophy will be included.

There will be time allotted for audience members to ask questions of the presenter.
