Networks for Training and Development, Inc., in conjunction with Philadelphia DBHIDS, proudly presents the 16th Employment Supports Symposium: “Employment First, Employment Now!”
The disability services system has changed by leaps and bounds since the days of hushed voices and institutions, but there is still a lot of work to do in order to make true community integration a reality for all, even those with the most significant disabilities. Come and hear about the exciting opportunities for systems change provided by Employment First policies, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), and recent final Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) rule. The opportunities for meaningful systems change are great, and community integration for all, no matter their level of need, is closer than ever.
