About the event

CLASS invites people with disabilities, family members, professionals, employers, and students to join this important discussion.

Have you ever asked yourself...

  • Can I work if I have a disability? (spoiler: yes!)
  • Will I lose my benefits if I get a job?
  • Should I tell an employer about my disability?
  • Who is protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)?
  • What is a reasonable accommodation?

If you have ever asked these questions, then this webinar is perfect for you! During the presentation, Chris Phelps will share information about Employment Services that he has gained throughout his 30-year career in Human Services. Those who attend the webinar will gain important information about the true nature of employment services.

Topics will include:

  • Types of employment services & how they are provided
  • Accessing employment services: application process & requirements
  • Accommodations - what they are and how to request them!
  • Additional employment resources

For questions about this webinar, please contact Chris Phelps at 412.683.7100 x2125 or cphelps@classcommunity.org.

This project is funded by the Pennsylvania Developmental Disabilities Council.
