Supported Education (SEd): The Bridge that Connects Persons with Disabilities to their Educational Goals
Tuesday, February 26, 2019
- 2:00 PM
The ages of 15 through 21 is the time when young people are beginning to develop adult roles such as becoming an employee and/or college student. However, this is also the age range when the onset of mental illness often occurs (Newman et al., 1996).
As a result, disruption can occur in this critical time of development as those who experience mental health issues try to come to grips with their illness. Supported Education (SEd) is an evidence-based practice that can help these individuals pursue and obtain their educational goals in the post-secondary educational setting.
Participants will learn
- the history of and be provided with, an overview of Supported Education (SEd)
- to identify SEd's core service components
- to identify the benefits of Supported Education and how to access these services in the community
