People with developmental disabilities want to and can work; they need the right opportunity. Advancing job opportunities often requires a conscious and planful effort by families, their networks and FMS support staff. The resources available through FMS can be effectively utilized to create employment possibilities and provide on-the-job support to ensure success when and where needed ensuring people with developmental disabilities have meaningful employment.
The session will cover the following:
- Creating employment possibilities based on the interests of the individual

Families and FMS staff are encouraged to attend.
