Promoting Competitive Integrated Employment: What You Can Do


Wednesday, October 24, 2018
3:00 P.M. to 4:30 P.M. EST


Cost: Free


Format: Webinar


Where: Online/Web-based


Sponsored By:

LEAD Center, National Disability Institute (NDI)

Description:

Competitive Integrated Employment (CIE) is critical to achieving equal opportunity, full participation, and economic self-sufficiency for people with disabilities -- and so are you. Join this webinar to learn about ways you can help expand opportunities for CIE in your community, where people with and without disabilities work side-by-side and are paid competitive salaries. Learn how your input can help to develop and implement federal and state policies that advance opportunities for CIE, such as the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Settings Rule, state Employment First policies, and more.

This webinar will offer suggestions for engagement and advocacy, including opportunities to educate students with disabilities, their families, and their teachers about CIE and the transition process. An experienced group of panelists will share resources and show you the avenues you can take to improve your state’s employment options for people with disabilities. The webinar will also highlight the recently released LEAD Center brief, Five Ways You Can Help Expand Opportunities for Competitive Integrated Employment in Your Community.
