The Center on Disability and Community Inclusion (CDCI) is offering two opportunities for community employment providers this fall. An online course, Employment Consulting and Workplace Support, is being offered through the Institute on Disability at the University of New Hampshire. CDCI faculty member Bryan Dague will co-teach this 6 week course with David Hagner of the UNH. This online mini-course teaches employment specialists, job coaches and others to assist employees with disabilities to succeed in community jobs. The course begins September 24.

The Employment Services Training Seminar will take place October 31 & November 1, at the University of Vermont Davis Center. Sponsored by CDCI and Vermont APSE, this training is designed as an introductory course, providing strategies for community employment providers to implement best practices in employment services and to increase outcomes for persons with disabilities.

CDCI has been providing training and technical assistance through the Supported Employment Project for over 25 years. CDCI coordinates several projects designed to increase the inclusion of adults with disabilities into the workplace.
