Real People, Real Impact Report by ODEP
The Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) has released a new report. Real People, Real Impact discusses the current successes and challenges facing people with disabilities in the workforce. It covers the years 2009-2012. From May 13th-May 27th there is an online dialogue on transition for youth with disabilities. Please take a look at the website if you are interested in registering. We need to begin thinking about the future early on and not wait for what is legally considered the transition years. College, employment and other post secondary options can only be made accessible through extensive education, training, partnerships and planning. Please take the time to be a part of this important conversation. You can also sign-up to receive monthly alerts on the Disability Outreach calls made by the White House.
