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

This webinar will examine the impact of how vocational rehabilitation counselors (VRCs) view individuals with significant disabilities on their caseload. Additionally, it will provide strategies the supervisor can implement to assist counselors in being successful including:

  • What counselors can do during the planning process.
  • Information the counselor can request that highlights the individual’s ability to contribute.
  • How to help counselors plan for individuals' complexities and support needs without losing sight of their contributions.
  • Helping VRCs understand how their view of the job market impacts who they think can work.
  • The importance of looking at tasks rather than job titles.
  • How to pull from internal and external resources.

This webinar will explore the importance of starting from the vantage point of what an individual can do as opposed to what they can’t do. The expected outcome of this webinar is that supervisors can help their counselors start to see the individual's contributions before seeing their complexities.
