Employment for ALL: Getting & keeping jobs for people with disability
August 15, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
We get a lot more than a pay cheque from having a job. Paid work can increase our skills, knowledge, confidence and networks. However, as real jobs for people with disability are often elusive and employment rates are very low, it is timely to take a day to reflect on how this could be different.
In this seminar Michael Callahan will explain how to customise employment, the process of ‘discovery’ and the benefits of ‘systematic instruction’ or job coaching for people with disabilities. He will also address the significant barriers to real work for people and provide families and workers with proven and practical strategies for assisting people to plan for, seek out and sustain employment.

People with disability, family members, supporters and people who work with people with disability in paid roles will all benefit from attending this seminar.
