Session Description

In light of current legislation and best practices affecting disability programs and services, organizations are seeking ways to provide more meaningful, productive activities for individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities that will increase their independence. But how do you measure success? In this webinar, the participant will learn how the right skills assessment tool can lend itself to creating a complete picture of an individual’s strengths and challenges, and how this data can translate to a person-centered curriculum plan with evidence-based outcomes for small groups.

A recording will be made available for registrants.
