44 Series - Informed Choice and Employment First: What does it Really Mean?

Listen to the archived webinar here. This webinar looked at the subject of informed choice. What considerations come into play when someone with IDD “chooses work”? What information and exposure or exploration does someone need to decide to leave a familiar setting, such as a sheltered workshop or day program , to work in their community? In this webinar, we heard from Don Lavin, the executive director of the Arc Minnesota, and Nicole LeBlanc, from Green Mountain Self-Advocates, about what informed choice means to them in the context of Employment First.
