Register

This webinar addresses the health promotion needs of transition-age adults with developmental disabilities.  These health promotion needs are similar to those of other young adults entering college and the workforce, yet a lack of accessible health promotion campaigns for transition-age persons with developmental disabilities exist.

May 12, 2020 (1pm - 2pm CST) - Using the Health Matters Curriculum with the Project SEARCH Program Model
Register

Health and fitness are critical to achieving and maintaining competitive employment. With this in mind, we have developed guidelines for integrating the Health Matters curriculum into the Project SEARCH program year. The guidelines align Health Matters lesson plans with the 8 subject areas of the ProjectSEARCH course of study and provide a week-by-week blueprint for curriculum delivery.  In this presentation we will discuss the guideline document andshare knowledge gained through a pilot trial of the curriculum guidelines at 10 Project SEARCH sites throughout Ohio.

Please note There is no cost for these webinars. Registration is required. CEUs are not offered for these webinars. ​For disability accommodations email Jasmina Sisirak (jsisirak@uic.edu) at least 10 days before the webinars.
