Adapting Employment First Efforts to COVID-19 Situation
Time & Location
About The Event
The COVID-19 Pandemic is having a tremendous impact on services to individuals with disabilities. Federal and state funders are acting to allow flexibility and innovation in how services continue to be delivered as individuals isolate at home. Attending this webinar will help you answer the following questions:
· What can we do right now to help combat the challenges that individuals with disabilities, their families, and their in-home support providers are facing?
· What are the opportunities for providers to deliver services that address individuals that were seeking or working in competitive integrated employment before COVID-19?
· Are there other opportunities to engage people staying at home who hadn't yet decided to pursue competitive integrated employment before COVID-19?
