Event Type


This is the second of three webinars for individuals with developmental disabilities, families and others on the benefits and the importance of customized employment (CE)

The Illinois Council on Developmental Disabilities (ICDD) in partnership with training experts from Marc Gold & Associates (MG&A) is hosting part two of this free CE webinar series on Dec. 15 from 10 – 11:30 a.m.

This session builds off the fundamental concepts that were discussed in webinar one (visit the ICDD website for the recording) regarding CE, the belief that all people, regardless of their disabilities, can work.

CE is a critical concept for assuring employment for all and is based on learning when a person is at their best and translating that information into an integrated community work environment that matches and meets the specific abilities of the individual with a significant disability and the business needs of the employer.

This webinar provides additional information and key insights important to the perspectives of the employment seeker and the important role of the family.

Attendees will also learn about:

  • Principles and essential elements of CE
  • CE processes, activities and documentation
  • Person-centered planning aspects of CE

Please register online.

The webinars are free for registered participants. The last webinar in this series is scheduled for March 15.
