What can I be when I grow up? – Holland Bloorview

Early strategies to promote employment inclusion.

Join ODEN and Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital for a FREE parent/caregiver workshop “What can I be when I grow up?” Early strategies to support employment inclusion.

Did you know that your expectations and your child’s participation in home and community activities can affect their future employment opportunities? Join us to discuss and explore:

  • Having high expectations – why does it matter?
  • How responsibilities/chores at home and extra-curricular activities can build skills and attitudes
  • for future work
  • Myth-busting (Yes – many youth with disabilities work! Employers value diverse workforces)
  • Programs and services that promote participation

This workshop is geared for families with children/youth aged 5-15 (youth not yet job searching).

Date/Time: December 2nd at 11:30 a.m. or 7:30 p.m.
