Workshop

Planning for life after school can seem daunting, especially when you have a disability. The options may seem slim and limited, however with vision, preparation and planning it’s possible for young people with a disability to thrive after school.

This workshop aims to assist you to plan and prepare for life after school.

Topics covered in this workshop: What can be done early to build a foundation for adulthood at home and in your neighbourhood, Creating a clear vision, goals and objectives for life after school, The importance of harnessing gifts, interest, passions and strengths, Further education, Customising employment, Creative employment options, The art of asking, and Finding the right supports. This is a practical workshop and will use interactive exercises, refection and discussion!

Who is this workshop for? This workshop is aimed at carers, family members and friends of students with a disability leaving school but is applicable to younger children as a means of longer-term preparation or for those who have already left school. It will be of interest to those who are interested to learn about creating a vision for work, the various employment pathways available to students with a disability once they leave school and how best to plan for this vital stage. It will also be of interest to teachers and teacher’s aids. Everyone is welcome.
