Disability Employment Initiative – Round V Workshop

These two one-day workshops will be held to share the strategies employed and lessons learned by pilots sites engaged in the Disability Employment Initiative – Round 5. Local Workforce Innovation Areas and their partners, including special education providers, DRS, secondary and postsecondary education entities are encouraged to attend. Specific topics that will be addressed include the formation and use of Integrated Resource Teams, the development of process maps that identify partner roles in providing services to clients, and the Individual Career Development Plan – a career plan that meets the legal requirements of an Individualized Education Program Transition Plan for individuals with disabilities. Speakers from DEI V pilot sites, as well as national experts, will share their experiences and recommendations to address the needs of individuals with disabilities in gaining employment.

Target Audience
The intended audience for these summits are local Illinois Department of Rehabilitation Services staff, staff from Community Rehabilitation Providers (CRPs), Local Workforce Innovation Area staff, including management and program staff from program contractors.
