Planning for Employment During a Pandemic: If Not Now, When?

Getting a Job: Nuts & Bolts
Updated: March 25, 2024

This presentation on planning for employment will focus on home-school-community collaboration during a pandemic for youth receiving IEP services aged 14–22 years old. In our increasingly complex and demanding world, most youth are at least a little stressed out by the prospect of finding and keeping a job they love. For youth with disabilities, the process of securing a job and finding success and happiness in the workplace often comes with additional challenges to overcome, from securing transportation to gaining access to modifications. Skill-based strategies will be shared from lessons learned with an emphasis on preparing for the future.

Presented by Sherry Elander, M. ED, Transition Specialist/Special Education Teacher, Westfield Public Schools.
Part of the MDSC 37th Annual Virtual Conference
