New York

“Building upon 10 CE regional learning communities implemented by BBI and its experts during 2009 and continued in 2010, CE principles and practices are being introduced and replicated as tools to increase employment access and outcomes for people with disabilities, especially those with complex needs. CE pilot projects initially developed in 2009 in Hempstead and Utica, NY were replicated in other NYS locations, augmented by deployment of mentors trained in CE techniques are demonstrating validity of the approach.”
