Wise Webinar A Day Series: A New Normal: Use what you already know to help your customers stay safe and supported with Shaun Wood & special guest Fantasy A
Our new normal is staying home from work and staying socially distant from others. How can job coaches generate potentially billable work using strategies that they already know to help their customers understand the quarantine, adjust to new routines, and stay safe? This webinar will focus on adapting supported employment and positive behavior support strategies such as video modeling, social narratives, choice boards, and schedules to help everyone adjust to staying at home. We’ll save time for group discussions and brainstorming on what is already working for people. Focus will be given to strategies that could help people most impacted by their disability. Since this webinar is at the end of the week, let’s have some fun! We will feature a special guest; Seattle’s legendary rapper and undisputed King of Hustle Fantasy A. Fantasy A, aka Alexander Hubbard is a well-known autistic musician from Seattle who writes songs about his life struggles and the things that go on every day in life. Fantasy A will give us a preview of his new coronavirus song and share his thoughts on remembering to be yourself, staying inspired, being respectful, and washing your hands!
- Learners will leave with ideas for potentially billable activities they can do with people in service to help them stay connected to employment services through the quarantine.
- Learners will have ideas for how they can use supported employment and positive behavior support strategies to help people significantly impacted by their disability to understand social distancing and how to stay safe.
* Please note – there are no refunds for those that do not attend the scheduled webinar. If you do miss the webinar, we will provide you with a code to access the next webinar free.
