Sharing the #LifeCourse Framework: Advancing employment outcomes for people with disabilities
The National Community of Practice was invited by the State Employment Leadership Network (SELN) to present Sharing the LifeCourse Framework, a series of online discussions on the role of family involvement in employment for people with disabilities. Using the LifeCourse Framework as a backdrop, the discussions focused on ways to reframe expectations around employment.
There are three presentations in the series. CoP co-director, Sheli Reynolds, presented the first session on February 10, 2015. The first session focused on strategic mapping using the LifeCourse framework. Over 50 employment professionals from the SELN national network logged in to participate. The remaining sessions will focus on using the LifeCourse framework to directly impact employment outcomes and applying the framework at the policy and practice level.
