Limited Capacity seats available

Forty years after the DD Act and the founding of TASH, and twenty five years after the ADA, individuals with significant disabilities are still segregated and denied access to meaningful employment. This, despite public policy that states we should expect integration and inclusion in all aspects of life. The law alone is insufficient to assure equality of opportunity. We must demand that public funds and services support full inclusion and opportunity to become self-sufficient. Learn about strategies that are challenging the status quo and what you can do to gain access to supports and services needed to obtain real employment. OBJECTIVES: 1. State the basis for civil rights protections for people with disabilities related to real jobs. 2. Summarize recent strategies that have increased Employment First practices. 3. Challenge state and local practices resulting in systemic change.
