The Journey: Creating the Perfect Storm: Developing Meaningful Vocational Experiences for Youth with Complex Needs
Monday, October 25, 2:30–3:10 p.m.
Learn more about developing vocational experiences for students with developmental disabilities, including youth with complex needs. Hear more about the importance of starting early, the relationship between work experiences and self-determination, and making the experiences intentional, authentic, and chaining/bridging the experiences so they lead to paid employment. Using actual cases, presenters will highlight what they have found to be most successful, including the importance of collaboration with the agencies and individuals that work with these students. 

Presenters: Kathy Kleiser and Josh Welhener, Transition Coordinators, Greene County Board of Developmental Disabilities
