Yesterday, UCP's Melissa Miller, Director of UCP's Supported Employment Department, was the keynote speaker at the PHAME One Community Luncheon, an event celebrating inclusive employment for people with developmental disabilities. Congrats, Melissa!
Leaving high school and finding a job can be hard. Leaving high school and finding a job can be even more difficult if you experience developmental disabilities.
That’s why two of UCP’s fantastic Employment Specialists (Ursula Morton and Xochil Springer) recently presented at The Oregon Statewide Transition Conference, which was held was held March 1-2.
Ursula and Xochil presented to a packed room, speaking about “Job Development 101.” Their goal was to help teachers learn how to customize employment opportunities for their students; they also shared ideas for collaborating with government entities such as Vocational Rehabilitation.
