Washington State Technical Assistance
Wise’s Role in the State of Washington:
Wise is the Supported Employment Technical Assistance and Training agency supporting Washington State’s Developmental Disabilities Administration, county developmental disability programs, and supported employment agencies. We work with state DDA and WA State counties to customize, plan and deliver best practice training, technical assistance, and collaboration to promote employment for Washingtonians who experience developmental and intellectual disabilities. We also host statewide and regional events and are adept at delivering our services through several modalities including in-person, online, and hybrid in-person/online. We have expert staff and a large group of subject matter experts & Wise Associates to fill this important need in Washington State.
Wise is proud to have partnered with local leaders and providers for over 30 years to help Washington State become and remain a leader in Supported Employment. Continual capacity building through professional development opportunities, systems and policy change efforts, and collaborative projects ensures access to quality employment opportunities across Washington State that are examples referenced nationally and internationally.
