Exploring Opportunities for Creating Employment

The Darrell Cook Family Managed Resource Centre and Inclusion Alberta present the third event in the FMS Learning Series: Exploring Opportunities for Creating Employment

Date: Saturday March 13th, 2021

Time: 9am to 12pm

**Registration for this workshop is full. If you would like to go on a wait list, please e-mail Pat at pwinter@inclusionalberta.org**

Employment has a central role in most people’s lives, offering purpose and meaning to one’s life, in addition to an income. The vast majority of individuals with developmental disabilities can be successfully employed at least part-time and many full-time. The resources available through FMS can be effectively utilized to both create employment possibilities and to provide on-the-job supports to ensure success, when and where needed. More and more employers are demonstrating a willingness and recognizing the benefits of hiring individuals with developmental disabilities.

The session will cover:

  • Engaging Employers
  • Creating employment possibilities based on the interests of the individual
  • Facilitating natural supports in an employment setting

Families and FMS staff are encouraged to attend.

Workshop Presenter: Wendy McDonald 

The first 100 people to sign in will be able to join.
