In this edWebinar, Chris Dede and John Richards explore new models and strategies for lifelong learning in an era of profound economic disruption and invention.
The goal of the presentation is to share practical strategies for preparing students with a wide range of disabilities for employment before or after they graduate.
Students with disabilities leave school and go on to opportunities that include competitive employment. Unfortunately the vast majority of students with intellectual disabilities are unemployed (Institute for Community Inclusion, 2012). Recent directives from the federal government suggests that states are not doing enough to prepare students with intellectual disabilities to gain employment after leaving high school.
