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

The webinar will highlight self-employment as a viable option for individuals with the most significant disabilities.  Topics to be addressed will include:

  • Attitudes that frequently prevent us from being supportive of self-employment.
  • Starting from the vantage point of how does this fit with who the potential business owner is and what supports need to be in place to for success.
  • The importance of working with a team.
  • Different models - business within a business, customized self-employment, supported self-employment.

The expected outcome of the webinar is that supervisors will understand when self-employment might be a good match for an individual with the most significant disability.
