Limited Capacity seats available

As providers look to fully comply with the HCBS rule, many innovative models are being piloted to assess effectiveness in supporting individuals engaged in sheltered workshops to transition to competitive employment in the community. One particular pilot program adapted the Project SEARCH high school transition model for the purposes of supporting workshop-to-work transition. As part of the overall evaluation of the adapted model, this project aimed to document the individual journey of discovery through the use of video. In particular, the ability to articulate vocational strengths and self-determined career goals, a foundational goal of the pilot, was assessed over time. 1. Participants will view video case studies of project participants 2. Participants will share perceptions of the growth of the participants as documented over time 3. Participants will engage in dialogue about the benefits and limitations of the model 4. Participants will gain a general understanding of the structure of the Project SEARCH workshop-to-work model
