Effective Practices for Employment Preparation and Support for Youth with Disabilities (12-3-2015)

The year was 2015 - the 40th anniversary of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This presentation focused on progress and accomplishments, with a focus on transition and employment for youth with disabilities. Featuring personal stories as well as a discussion of the latest professional research, this session reminded us that we should presume all youth can be employed.
