IIDC's Center on Community Living and Careers (CCLC) offers a variety of core subject trainings for employment specialists and consultants working with job seekers and employees with disabilities. The center also partners with Indiana Vocational Rehabilitation to offer periodic Topic Trainings on emerging areas of interest to VR staff and employment providers throughout the state. These Employment Topic Trainings are free of charge and are recorded.
Family values, access to resources and health care, poverty, and language can all be factors in establishing trust and working successfully with job seekers and supported employees. Renae Azziz, of Virtuoso Education Consulting, recently led a three-part webinar series, "Starting the Journal Toward Cultural Responsivity," to help employment professionals understand cultural differences and respond in a way that effectively supports each client's rehabilitation process.
