This webinar will explore factors to consider in determining which work experience is the best use of time for an individual student at a particular point in time. The discussion will begin by determining the particular purpose of each work experience and the particular transition time line for this student. For example, if the individual is in their first year of high school and participating in their first work experience the purpose and timeline will be drastically different than if the individual is 20 years old and participating in their first work experience. Additionally, we will explore what to teach in each work experience, what the student can learn and what the transition team can learn. How do we make the most of each work experience and best prepare youth with disabilities for productive lives?

This is the third of five webinars in the TACE Transition Webinar Strand: Work Experiences for Youth.
