Work Experiences as Expanded Discovery:
What is the purpose of Work Experience for  job seekers with disabilities While there is evidence that there is a positive correlation between work experience and increased employment outcomes for transitioning youth, there are many ways that work experiences have been used that are not always in sync with assuring access to employment, for instance when used as a part of assessments that may be failed. This webinar will feature an enhanced view of work experiences as a form of Expanded Discovery. In this conceptualization, individuals cannot "fail" an experience, rather work experiences provide information on the person's conditions for success, their interests towards certain aspects of the job market and the specific contributions that they might make to potential employers. Join us for a new twist on a traditional idea.
