This August, the Missouri Developmental Disabilities Council (MODDC) and the University of Missouri Pre-Employment Transition Services hosted a free two-day virtual webinar for Missouri Partners in Policymaking graduates.
Participants learned how to find competitive integrated employment and how they can help bring more more awareness to available resources.
Competitive integrated employment is when employees are getting paid the same amount as employees without disabilities and when people with disabilities have the choice to get the same kind of jobs as people without disabilities.
Recorded videos of the virtual summit held on August 23-24, 2023 are now available.
