Learn: Live & Online

Fostering Employment First takes teamwork! Through our acclaimed conferences, online education, and network of state chapters, APSE promotes a robust exchange of practical and timely information to build better workplaces, communities, and futures.

APSE gatherings are rich with presentations and by discussions with subject matter experts, disability service providers, researchers, families, and self-advocates. Our online education gives you many of these benefits, with the comfort and convenience of learning from home. APSE helps you:

  • Save steps – learn the practices to replicate and those to avoid
  • Engage with subject matter experts and businesses that are leaders in the Employment First movement
  • Understand the perspectives of and work with many stakeholders
  • Receive technical assistance
  • Become fluent in relevant laws, regulations, funding paradigms
  • Convert strategies and tools and put them to work for you
  • Plan future actions with your team
  • Expand your network of mentors and colleagues, and
  • Build or improve thoughtful plans for inclusive workplaces

I love all the employment workshops and I love the knowledge that everyone has for helping people find employment.
