Connecting Families – Let’s Talk Employment with Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission
October 5 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). FCSN has invited Kathleen Kelly and Rachel Reyes to offer important information families and youth with disabilities need to know to get ready for the world of work. Successful employment is one of the key parts of a happy, meaningful life. Youth with disabilities and their families may have questions about how employment may affect benefits. Families and youth may not be aware of just how early they can start receiving transition supports (Pre-Employment Transition Supports or Pre-ETS) IN school to prepare students for employment after school.
This event will be hosted with access to interpretation and transcription in 20+ languages. Click for instructions on Accessing Interpretation.
