Training Overview Description

Join us for this exciting opportunity to learn more about INCLUSIVE SUPPORTED EMPLOYMENT!

The National Competence Center on Developmental Disabilities (NAKU) of Norway and the North Dakota Center for Persons with Disabilities (NDCPD) of North Dakota, USA are pleased to announce an international opportunity for learning and discussion on Inclusive Supported Employment (also known as Customized Employment). We invite our international colleagues to present on their work on Inclusive Supported Employment, and to attend online sessions and presentations about this important topic. It will culminate in a focused pre-conference on Inclusive Supported Employment in Washington, DC in the fall of 2020.

NDCPD and NAKU are hosting a series of four (4) online webinars from Fall 2019 through the Fall 2020. These webinars will cover the main concepts of customized employment, international perspectives on legal and policy measures in support of customized employment and showcases of the implementation of customized employment from around the world. Internationally renowned experts in inclusive supported employment will be involved in these presentations.

The webinars will be available live during the scheduled time via Zoom Video Conferencing. You will be able to use your desktop or mobile device to watch the webinar. Instructions for logging in to the webinar will be available once your reservation is confirmed.
