Past Trainings:

Oh Yes, I CAN Work! (Part 1)
Competitive Employment for People with Significant Disabilities

This half day training was designed to advance the concept that competitive integrated employment for people with significant disabilities is achievable. Our featured speaker, Laura Owens, Ph.D., highlighted programs that get people with significant disabilities employed. Attendees heard from a panel of individuals with disabilities who are successfully employed in integrated settings at competitive wages. The panelists were joined by job coaches and/or employers who have supported their journey to job success. An audience Q&A concluded the session.
