Why Paid Work Experience is Important to Students with Disabilities

Presentation by Mary Hartley, Executive Director of the Parent Education & Advocacy Leadership (PEAL) Center with Achieva

During this presentation, we will discuss:

  • Your seamless transition to adulthood – planning for transition led by students
  • The proof – students who work before they leave high school; inclusion in school and community, and impact on employment
  • Letting Go – Start as early as possible letting go (for parents); independent (supported) transportation, volunteerism, work-based learning & most importantly, real jobs
  • Success Stories
