Resource Fair for families with high school students with disabilities
September 29, 2022
CLARKSTON–Families of high school students with disabilities (504 Plans, Individualized Educational Plans, or a documented disability) are invited to attend the Asotin County Resource Fair on October 12 at 5:30 p.m., at the Asotin County Fire District Station. The invitation extends to neighbor communities such as students and families of Pomeroy high school.
Those with disabilities ages 16-21 (or as young as 14 in certain circumstances) may be eligible for free career readiness services from the Washington State Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR).
Families are invited to attend with their high school student and their younger siblings to discover a plan and a pathway towards future employment goals and social development. Students with disabilities ages 19-21 may be eligible for Job Foundations. Find out about paid summer work opportunities and paid work during the school year for students with disabilities.
Free transportation is provided with coordinating schools. A meal is provided as well as free books and fire truck demonstrations for the younger family members.
Vocational Rehabilitation provides services to individuals who want to work but need assistance due to a physical, sensory, cognitive or mental disability.
If families are unable to attend but would like information about their student’s eligibility, contact Jennifer at the Washington State Division of Vocational Rehabilitation via email, [email protected], or call 509.780.7687.
Information regarding access to services for adults 21+ with disabilities is also available. Visit asotincommunityservices.com or facebook.com/asotincommunityservices for more information.
The Resource Fair is organized by Asotin County Community Services and the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, Developmental Disabilities Administration and Rural Resources.
