Best Practices in Employment Supports: Where Do We Go with What We Know?


October 4, 2019 - Duration 2.75 hrs

 

Kelly Nye-Lengerman, PhD
Research Associate
Institute on Community Integration
University of Minnesota
Minneapolis, MN


Everyone can work with the right supports. People with IDD are and can be valuable contributors to businesses and the local economy. The right employment supports at the right time are powerful facilitators to independence, contribution, and inclusion in the workplace. This session explores employment as a vehicle for community inclusion; a comprehensive model of employment informed by individuals with IDD, families, and professionals; and research that explores how employment professionals spend their time. Investment in employment professionals can improve the quality of employment services to individuals with IDD, outcomes achieved by organizations, and enhance the skills and knowledge of employment professionals to implement best practices.
