employment innovation series flyer

Hosted by the State Employment Leadership Network in collaboration with the California Department of Developmental Services and the California Association of Regional Center Agencies, this four-session employment series will cover the following topics:

  •     The Importance of Employment on April 24, 2012
  •     Relationships and Networking on May 10, 2012
  •     Person-Centered Career Practices on May 24, 2012
  •     Organizational Change from Facility-Based to Community-Based  Employment Services on June 12, 2012

Assisting people with developmental disabilities to find meaningful employment in the general workforce can be daunting. This online and in-person series will explore why a regular job in the community is a priority. Concrete ideas for how the current day support system can increase employment outcomes will be offered.

The goal of the series is to increase awareness about employment, and to provide a discussion forum for families, individuals, organizations and professionals in the field.

Lanterman Regional Center will be a host site for this series of online lectures exploring employment for people with developmental disabilities. These presentations will give participants a chance to share new ideas and discuss challenges related to community employment. These local gatherings will occur in conjunction with the online presentations and will be a time for everyone to discuss questions related to the material.

Class size is limited. Register to attend the presentations being held at Lanterman with Ronna Kajikawa at 213.252.4976 or training@lanterman.org.

For a list of other host sites, such as California's network of Regional Centers, that are volunteering space, staff and resources to participants in their area, visit www.arcanet.org.
