People with disability have the capacity and ability to take part in meaningful work of their choice when provided with the right employment strategies and supports.

Gaelen Williams - Coordinator, Customised Employment projects from NDS will be delivering the specialised training that aims to support you to develop the knowledge, tools and resources necessary to support people with significant disability who want to work.

In the USA, Canada and other countries, people with more complex disability are supported into employment using a technique called Customised Employment. In Australia, through the NDIS, people with disability are increasingly seeking transition to work using supports that incorporate a Customised Employment approach.

NDS have been delivering customised training as part of the WA NDIS School to Work pilot since 2016. NDS have trained over 800 people in this process to date including; staff from the disability sector, NDIS planners, Local Area Coordinators, schools, employment services, families and people with disability.

This training will introduce the ‘Informational Interviewing Technique’ and provide practical examples of how to maintain successful workplace partnerships. We share case studies to assist people to think differently when it comes to employment supports for people with disability.
