A Future That Includes Employment: A Workshop For Families

August 27, 2019

 

  • Do you have a son or daughter with a disability?

  • Do you have questions about the role employment can play in their future?

  • Would you like to learn strategies to help your son or daughter prepare for success in employment?

This workshop is intended to provide accurate information to, and help raise the expectations of, families in Michigan. The goals are to show that work is possible for all people regardless of disability, to help address questions families may have, and to connect families with the resources they need to begin advocating for competitive employment for their sons and daughters.

 

This workshop is appropriate for families of individuals with all types of disabilities, especially those with high support needs. Educators, advocates, and service providers are also welcome. Come to get energized, informed, and excited about a future that includes employment for individuals with disabilities.

 

These events are co-sponsored by Employment 1st, the Michigan Developmental Disabilities Council, and MARO.
