This webinar will help you become familiar with the general characteristics of prevalent disabilities, as well as practical strategies to foster successful long-term employment. The disabilities discussed will include: Intellectual Disabilities, Deaf and/or Visual Impairments, Traumatic Brain Injury, and Mental Health Disorders. Of course each job and each candidate are unique, but there are some things you should know that could assist you in making such an employee/employer relationship a successful one. Participants will learn:
- Featured disability descriptions
- The impact these disabilities have on employment
- Strategies to help train and support employees who may experience such disabilities
- Resources to assist you as you build capacity within your organization to support individuals with disabilities
The ultimate goal is for you to come away with a broader perspective and new strategies relative to hiring people with disabilities, which results in a diverse work environment without lowering expectations.
