Zoom Webinar

What is this webinar about?

Our roles are not only an important part of our identity but they provide the means to belong and contribute to the community. People with an intellectual disability and/or Autism are often denied access to the abundance of valued roles available in the community. Or we might be committed to assisting people to pursue valued roles but unsure how to build or deepen them. This webinar focuses on how to initiate and build valued roles. It will also explore ways to ensure that people not only take up valued roles but feel like they belong and contribute to associational, workplace and community life.
