Students with disabilities require many skills for post-school success, including academic knowledge, technical expertise, and a set of general, cross-cutting abilities called employability skills. The U.S. Department of Education, through an initiative of the Office of Career, Technical, and Adult, developed the Employability Skills Framework in an effort to clearly identify the general skills necessary for success in the labor market at all employment levels and in all sectors. 

This interactive session will:
  • Introduce participants to the Employability Skills Framework and explain why it is important for students with disabilities 
  • Connect employability skill preparation to transition plans and lesson planning. 
  • Provide tools and strategies to select appropriate assessments and prioritize employability skills at the employer, district, and individual teacher levels.  
The session is relevant for special and general educators, career and technical educators, and vocational rehabilitation staff.
