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
  • Tapping into a network
  • Approaching employers
  • Facilitating natural supports in an employment setting

Families and FMS staff are encouraged to attend.

Lunch will be provided.
