Will the "Education and Training" Project include training for local educational agencies/teachers, who can provide students with information regarding resources and opportunities in IEP meetings, for example?

It would be wonderful if every RC Employment Specialists offered this. not sure if they can also take this role on as well. More quality training, instead of processing CIE and PIPs

100% Arturo. Regulatory hoops might delay or halt any of these new and innovative service models. Adequate funding of any new and innovative service models need to be supported our we will not see outcomes.

@Debbie Ball's comment is important on this. Education and Training for Families/Providers it would be difficult to assess the impact of Achievement of Employment.
Rosalinda Garcia
01:43:02
How about considering the social aspect of being employed? Additionally, continued learning even if it is for lateral promotion and not advancement.
Rosalinda Garcia
01:43:32
Agree with the Mental Health component as well.

to me, Outcome has to do with what actually happened that's observable; and like Carol, I think of Impact as the "so what", how did the "outcome" impact the persons life - e.g., move into a new or different place, get better benefits, go on vacation for the first time, etc
Eric Zigman
01:44:37
Impact is pretty individualized in my expereince
Vivian Haun
