Let Me Teach You How to Train
Part 1: Designing a Task
This presentation is part of the Wise series of trainings titled "Learning From Our Best Teachers, Individuals with Disabilities". The training will explore the importance of good training for success on the job and in all aspects of life. Many of us have been situations where we have received poor training and insufficient information to be successful. It will introduce David Dartt, who has been supported by Trillium employment Services for over 30 years. He will give us some valuable tools for training an individual on difficult tasks. This will be an ongoing series with the first session focused on getting to know the person and designing a task to ensure training success. It will be moderated by Chuy Campuzano, a consultant from Chicago Illinois, who has lived through some bad training experiences.
- Learn how to design a task to ensure success in training.

- Understand some of the negative learning experiences have been for individuals in training and how to avoid these.
- Go through the process of setting up a task by getting to know the task and identifying cues within the task.
Jesus Chuy Campuzano
Jesus Chuy Campuzano was born and raised in Chicago Illinois where he still resides. Growing up in Chicago he went through the special education system. After graduating he never received services from the Illinois Council of Developmental Disabilities as he was unaware and uninterested in long term services. Chuy was ashamed and felt isolated with his disability. Fortunately, he joined Access Living, a Disability Rights Organization in 2008 where he met Curtis Harris. He began to learn about individuals with all types of disabilities and to accept them. This led to Chuy becoming a leader in the advocacy community.
Chuy is a member of the Going Home Coalition and chairs the leadership committee. As a member of the WOW team Chuy plans and co-hosts the meetings and created the WOW Facebook Group. Chuy is a regular presenter at the Speak Up Speak Out Summit. His project “Dis Life …An historical perspective of Lives that matter” has allowed him to conduct numerous interviews with individuals in the disability community. Chuy believes that getting to know individuals and their strengths will lead to better outcomes in life. Everyone should be treated with respect and dignity!
