118 Pattee Hall
150 Pillsbury Drive SE
Minneapolis, Minnesota

Presented by Roger Stancliffe (pictured at ICI in 2016), this event focuses on: (a) the findings of a recently-published Australian evaluation of Transition to Work (TTW) employment outcomes (Xu & Stancliffe, 2017), and (b) the key training and support practices used by Jobsupport, an outstanding Australian disability employment service that supports people with intellectual disability to obtain and keep community jobs in mainstream employment. TTW is an Australian government service that supports young people ages 15-21 on their journey to employment, providing them with intensive, pre-employment support to improve their work-readiness and help them into work (including apprenticeships and traineeships) or education. Part of the presentation will feature the short video Community Work Options that depicts the practices used by Jobsupport trainers to achieve these highly-successful TTW employment outcomes. Stancliffe is a professor at the University of Sydney and partner staff of ICI's Research and Training Center on Community Living.
