~~“The first meeting of the Employment First Workgroup was held Thursday, February 16. The Workgroup is comprised of federal, state, regional and local agency stakeholders as well as community advocates, other professionals, business leaders, families, and individuals with disabilities to address barriers to employment and improve employment outcomes for people with disabilities. During the meeting, members of the workgroup shared information and perspectives related to education, individuals and families, developmental disabilities, and services for people with disabilities. Attendees also shared their experiences regarding seeking employment and applying to receive services.
