Wisconsin Rehabilitation Association (WRA) and International Association of Rehabilitation Professionals-Wisconsin (IARP-WI) are partnering for a webinar presentation on:
Employment Success with Family Involvement.

Topic Background

Family expectations and involvement can significantly influence employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities. Research has found that "young adults with significant disabilities whose parents definitely expected them to obtain post-school work way back in high school were more than five times as likely to have paid, community employment within two years after exiting." (Carter, Austin, & Trainor, 2013).

Webinar Focus
  • The role of family members in the employment planning process
  • Factors that potentially hinder engagement
  • Tips and strategies for increasing involvement
  • Examples of Family-Led Employment projects in Wisconsin and helpful resources
