This training centers on employment for youth with disabilities by presenting two distinct strands: self determination and “do-it-yourself” strategies for parents and concrete information about employment and how to access adult services for teens/young adults. Curriculum is tailored from region to region to local service delivery systems, youth programs and employment resources.
In-person trainings are offered throughout the state of Missouri. Parents living outside the state are permitted to attend but are encouraged to attend trainings in their home state. States have different laws and procedures regarding how children with disabilities receive special education and related services.
