How do we plan meaningful work experiences for students with disabilities in rural areas? This webinar will address how to gain the most information out of each work experience: how to identify skills, abilities, and support needs that we can assess on each site and new skills and strategies to teach the student. Creative strategies to identify opportunities through networking, tapping into social capital and exploring self-employment will all be shared.
