This webinar will introduce key concepts in career development and transition to employment for youth with disabilities. The session will include three major components.
First, participants will learn about the global context and international policies regarding access to employment for individuals with disabilities, including highlights from the 2011 World Report on Disability and the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities.
Second, the presenter will share definitions and unique features of career transition for youth with disabilities, drawing on key research in the field.
The third component of the session will utilize an ecological model to describe the critical interactions between individuals and their environments that influence career opportunities, and offer individual, family, school, and community strategies that support improved transition outcomes for youth with disabilities.
