Employment Preparation and Work Based Learning Experiences in a Virtual World

Collaboration between education, vocational rehabilitation and other agency partners has long been viewed as important in improving outcomes for students with disabilities and is especially essential in the implementation of WIOA and IDEA and related Pre-Employment Transition Services. One of the key factors in successful post-secondary employment outcomes for students with disabilities is participation in early work-based learning experiences. This session will explore effective practices, resources, and strategies for family members and professional staff in supporting students with disabilities to be able to access and participate in work-based learning experiences in virtual and distance learning environments during these challenging times.
