We invite you to attend a collaborative presentation with Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) and the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD). This presentation will discuss the importance of work for individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD), along with the valuable collaborative services (such as supported employment) that we know are effective tools in helping people with IDD in successfully achieving competitive employment. We will provide information on both agencies, including topics such as: how to refer to/request services, eligibility requirements, the important steps to participate in services, and what kinds of services might be available. This session is appropriate for families, educators, service providers, agency staff and anyone else who wants to learn how to support people with IDD with achieving employment.
1. Participants will learn how to access VR and DDD services, and how each system works.
2. Participants will learn how VR and DDD collaborate to best support mutual participants in achieving competitive employment.
3. Participants will learn about important services from both agencies which support people with IDD in achieving and maintaining competitive employment.
