When: Monday 21st August, 2017. 9.30am - 5.00pm

Where: Box Hill Town Hall, 1022 Whitehorse Road, Box Hill, Victoria

What: The employment rates of people with a disability are staggeringly low and with the emergence of the new Disability Employment Framework, this event should not be missed! This is a rare opportunity to learn from a renowned world leader about Customised Employment, a strategy that provides persons with disabilities, and indeed other people with significant barriers to employment, with an alternative to traditional, com- petitive job approaches. Customised Employment relies on a negotiated rather than competitive approach to employers. This approach to employment offers the promise of welcoming all persons with disabilities who wish to work into the open employment system and into a job that fits their needs and preferences. It also defines the critical roles required to support both the individual with a disability and the workplace to make employment a viable option for persons once thought to be unemployable.

Who For: This seminar is suited to anyone involved with employment services or policy, people with a disability and their families/allies or others who find themselves marginalised from employment, support workers, stu- dents, teachers, schools, local councils, government employees and others interest in real jobs for real pay!

Presenter: Michael Callahan

Its our great pleasure to welcome Michael Callahan to Australia! Michael has consulted throughout the US, Canada and Europe in the area of employment and transition for many years. For thirty-eight years he has worked with Marc Gold & Associates (MG&A), an early pioneer in the area of employment for people with significant needs. Michael has served as president of the organisation since Marc Gold’s death in 1982. In 2000,
Michael joined others to form a non-profit organisation, Employment for All which is
dedicated to ensuring full access to open employment for all persons with disabilities.
His current work focuses primarily on customised employment, discovery and systematic instruction and job coaching for adults and youth with significant intellectual and developmental disabilities. He has co-
authored two books and written widely on the topic of employment.
