Service Provider Transformation: From Policy to Opportunity
3:00pm - 4:30pm ET
Provider Transformation – the process of shifting a disability service provider from a focus on sheltered workshops and other non-work programs to services that foster competitive, integrated employment – is complex and multi-faceted, involving aspects of state policy, organizational performance, and individual outcomes. This webinar introduces the topic of Provider Transformation and includes panelists that will provide perspectives from the field on how EFSLMP is advancing Provider Transformation at the systems, services, and individual outcome levels. The panel will include representatives of state systems, individual service providers, an individual who started in a competitive integrated employment position as a consequence of the process, and his employer. The panelists will related their own experience in working through the policy and practical changes inherent in the Provider Transformation process, and the individual and his family and employer will discuss the competitive employment relationship that resulted from it.
