“The Impact of Proposed Budget Cuts on 403,370 adults and children with Disabilities in Connecticut”

Connecticut

~~“We build capacity: Through our Customized Employment project, we are training provider organizations the skills to identify and develop jobs for people with disabilities. Customized employment training is a defined rubric that has been shown to lead to real jobs for hard to place individuals. Working with Connecticut Legal Services, our Parents with Cognitive Limitations initiative has funded training for parents and court personnel, including judges, to address the unique issues that arise when these parents are involved with the courts. In addition, training was provided to DDS staff, self-advocates and medical personnel, including doctors. In all 330 people were trained in person, and additional individuals received training online.”
