This virtual session will focus on Employment Support, Education and Rec/Leisure options offered through KW Habilitation.  Program overviews will be provided to the entire group, followed by a facilitated question and answer period. This session will touch on programs primarily for teens and adults, however families with young children will still find it informative and interesting to see what KW Habilitation can offer to their children in the future.
