In this presentation we will discuss how to create an environment where competitive employment is seen as a viable possibility and the natural progression for students who have a developmental disability once they leave the school system, similar to their peers without a disability.


We will discuss:

  • The importance of basic literacy and numeracy
  • Providing opportunities for problem solving, teamwork and learning to learn
  • Access to Co-Op in community settings and paid summer employment
  • And learn about programs in your community that support access to employment


This session is for anyone who is involved in the life of a student in Grades 6 and higher who has a developmental disability, including:

  • Parents & Family members
  • Educators (teachers, educational assistances, service provider)
  • Health care providers (family doctors, physiotherapists)
  • Community social workers
