Why is this dialogue taking place?

There is no question that families/guardians continue to play a crucial role in the achievements of their young adult children--with and without disabilities--after they graduate from high school. However, limited supports are currently in place to assist families/guardians in supporting the educational and employment success of their young adult children once they move on from high school. During this online dialogue, we will discuss what postsecondary institutions including workforce development programs can do to better assist you in supporting your student’s educational and employment success.

Why participate?

We need your input to better understand what assistance families need to ensure the educational and employment success of their young adult children once they exit high school. As part of this dialogue, you will also benefit from the contributions of experts in the disability field on postsecondary education and workforce development trends and opportunities. We are excited to work together to improve dialogue and collaboration among the families and guardians supporting the educational and employment success of their young adult children with disabilities.

Who should participate?

This online event is open to the general public and to anyone interested in joining the conversation. We strongly encourage family members of students with disabilities currently in a postsecondary program, (e.g., certificate, apprenticeship, community college, college or university, etc.) or one who has been enrolled in the past, to participate.
