Description

This is the first of five webinars in the TACE Webinar Series: Helping Your Team Improve Employment Outcomes for Individuals with the Most Significant Disabilities.

As a supervisor how can you establish a climate that is excited about serving individuals with the most significant disabilities?

This webinar will address:

  • Thinking about what your vocational rehabilitation counselors (VRCs) value and how that impacts your unit serving individuals with the most significant disabilities.
  • How to dispel fear and/or concerns about serving individuals with the most significant disabilities.
  • The role that benefits planning and other supports can play in ensuring successful outcomes.
  • Ways to restructure and create more time for VRCs through the use of groups/peer support, working in teams, and streamlining paperwork.
  • Ways to involve partner agencies and organizations.

The expected outcome of this webinar is that supervisors will have concrete strategies they can implement with their unit to assist their counselors in increasing employment outcomes for individuals with the most significant disabilities.
