Upcoming Webcast - June 26

What Is Possible When Systems Truly Collaborate? - Join Richard Kriner and Nancy Brooks-Lane for a spirited conversation about the Commonwealth of Virginia's statewide efforts to increase the employment outcomes for youth and adults with the most significant disabilities. Over the past year, the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services (VA DARS) and the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) braided funding and resources for a statewide competency-based Discovery and Customized Employment initiative. This included providing training, technical assistance, and mentorship to agency staff resulting in ACRE certification for participants. The goals included educating stakeholders, especially families and businesses about the efficacy of customized employment. The webcast will include case study examples of individuals with disabilities as they achieve their employment goals through customized employment.
