This is the first of five webinars in the TACE Transition Webinar Strand: Work Experiences for Youth. Work is Good! The strongest predictor of post-school adult employment for youth with disabilities is real work experiences and jobs during the secondary school years. By participating in purposeful work experiences youth learn: skills at work; how to work; where they would like to work; what accommodations they might require in order to work; and how to produce at work to the satisfaction of current and future employers. This session will provide the rationale for work experiences, discuss the types and functions of work experience in career preparation, and show how transition professionals, teachers, and rehabilitation counselors can work together to insure that work experiences can set the stage for successful transition into adult employment for youth and young adults with disabilities.
