Event: Virginia Career Pathways: A Fully Accessible Approach

Join us for the third of a four-part webinar series on Career Pathways. We will share some specific strategies from the Virginia Career Pathways for Individuals with Disabilities. Items we will address during the webinar include:

  • How the Virginia Career Pathways for Individuals with Disabilities approach has infused assistive technology to improve credential attainment and employment outcomes for participants.
  • How to identify assistive technology devices used in modern manufacturing, logistics, and information technology or IT, and understand how participants can use these devices in their own agencies.
  • Understanding how self-regulation and sensory assistive technology can help individuals learn and enhance their ability to focus.
  • Understanding how a CPID assistive technology partnership model has been developed for sustainability and how they can use a similar model in their agency.

This webinar is hosted by the Career Pathways for Individuals with Disabilities, or CPID project in Virginia, including the Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services, the Virginia Department for the Blind and Vision Impaired, and the George Washington University Center for Rehabilitation Counseling, Research, and Education.

This webinar is close captioned and a transcript is available below.
