The Customized Employment 101 webinar will assist special education teachers, transition coordinators and employment specialists of middle and high students in considering person-directed employment beyond the confines of traditional job development. The outcome of customized employment planning is paid, community-based employment for students with complex lives. The features of the model include: transition planning, work experiences and individualized employment opportunities for students driven by their interests, support needs, strengths and contributions. In addition to competitive employment, entrepreneurial options or self-employment as a post-school outcome or as a career experience option are considered for students.
