7-23-18 Job Coaches: Strategies for working with Students with Complex Needs- No Fee for Member Districts, $35 Fee for Non Member Districts
This professional learning session will be an informative session for school district Job Coaches, Employment Specialists, Transition Consultants and High School Special Education Teachers who work with students with Complex Needs. Students with complex needs have a high rate of unemployment after exiting high school due to the level of supports needed. Often these students are not in competitive employment or in a job that interests them. This session will support school district staff to learn how to best support students with complex needs to look for jobs, to prep for jobs, to develop resumes, to participate in interviews, to self-advocate, and to remain competitively employed all while meeting their needs related to their disability. It is recommended that job coaches attend with their high school special education teachers but is not required.
