Family Employment Awareness Training (FEAT) was designed to raise expectations for and knowledge of competitive employment and supporting resources for people with disabilities. In 2013-2016, we conducted a quasi-experimental, mixed methods (survey and interview research) study on the effectiveness of FEAT in raising expectations, increasing knowledge, and changing the behaviors of families with a member with a disability regarding how they use information, seek support, and take steps to attain and maintain employment over time. This session will provide an overview of FEAT and report on the results of this recent research into its effectiveness.. Participants will learn about the key components and format of FEAT. Participants will learn about the effectiveness of FEAT in raising expectations, increasing knowledge, and changing employment and support seeking behavior.
