Welcoming All to a Working Life
Speaker: Michael Callahan
Callahan, a nationally renowned speaker of Marc Gold &
Associates and Employment for All, will discuss the
emerging concept of Customized Employment, a strategy useful for
assisting people with significant disabilities to become employed.
Michael describes Customized Employment as standing on the shoulders
of Supported Employment, but Customized Employment goes beyond to
include any individual with a complex life. Customized
Employment individualizes the employment relationship between
employees and employers in ways that meet the needs of both.
Please join us as we welcome all to a working life!
APSE-The Network on Employment is a national and state membership
