September 19 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Program Objectives |

This program is designed to provide participants with:

  • An understanding of the strong value proposition for the hiring of youth with disabilities
  • An understanding of how to empower these youth with knowledge as they transition to work, training, or post-secondary educational opportunities
  • Knowledge of tools and techniques to support youth during the disclosure and accommodation processes

Summary of Presentation

Empowering youth with disabilities with tools, techniques, and technologies ensures their successful transition to work, training, or post-secondary educational opportunities. Supporting these youth through this transition holds the promise of independence for their lifetime. Awaiting these youth is a new world of opportunity. Many businesses now understand the value proposition of hiring people with disabilities. This understanding has resulted in businesses having the policy, practices, and personnel in place to facilitate accommodation during the recruiting, hiring, and onboarding processes.

In this webcast, Louis Orslene, Associate Director of the Job Accommodation Network, will provide participants with the disability value proposition and a strategy for identifying businesses that are disability inclusive. Participants will also come away with an understanding of the rights and responsibilities of youth with disabilities during the transition period. This knowledge enables professionals to support youth to bridge the transition gap. Louis will also provide participants with tools, techniques, and technologies to empower youth with disabilities during transition.
