Technology, Communication & Employment for Youth with Disabilities

Three Part Webinar Series: Exploring the Intersection of Technology and Employment Systems Change for Youth with Disabilities
October 15th, 22nd & 29th from 3pm-4:30pm ET

Join us for this Three Part Webinar Series: Exploring the Intersection of Technology, Communication and Employment Systems Change for Youth with Disabilities. Explore how we can use newly developed, intuitive applications to support youth towards employment success and how we can best advocate for equal access to technology for all communities, including those that are traditionally underrepresented.
Hear unique perspectives shared from nationally recognized experts on viewing technology solutions beyond “assistive technology” and offer practical strategies to address gaps in access, application and usage.

 

This series is ideal for policy makers, state agency staff, employment program professionals, educators, self-advocates and families who want to learn more about the role technology can play in improving employment outcomes for youth and young adults with disabilities.
