The Inner Personal Edge: Tools
for School-to-work Success

By Jim Hasse, ABC, GCDF, Disability Employment Expert
______________________________________________________

Let’s tap the inner personal edge within young people who face unexpected challenges to successfully make the transition from school to work.

And, let’s not wait until it’s too late. The elementary and middle-school grade levels are not too early to start learning about how disability, when framed with insight from an employer vantage point, can become a competitive edge in the world of work.

Join me as a parent, provider, trainer or sponsor to show our youth the opportunities they have for putting disability to work as a competitive advantage in integrated employment settings.

For parents

BLOG

Simply copy this URL:http://www.cerebral-palsy-career-builders.com/cerebral-palsy.xml. Then, paste it into your website’s employment or resource page and format it as you wish.

That will also give you fresh content to highlight on your Facebook page every day.  Just copy and paste the current day's entry into your Facebook page.

As a result, the parents you serve will be in a better position to help their youngsters:

  • Become career ready during their school years.
  • Make a successful transition from school to work.
  • Develop a meaningful vocation.
  • Build independent lives.

And, they'll also receive my advance heads-up notices on my blog each week about free offerings and discounts on all of my books and information products.

PROFESSIONAL SPEAKER

“My parents didn’t allow me to use my differences as an excuse for not pursuing an independent life.”

So says professional speaker Richard James Luby, who was born in 1983 with cerebral palsy (CP).

That’s precisely I believe why your special needs parenting group needs to hear Rich in person. As a professional speaker and founder of TALK the WALK, LLC., he uses comedic improv to deliver impactful lessons through real-world life experiences. Talk The Walk, LLC, is an action-based disability and inclusion training service.

For sponsors

SOLE SITE SPONSORSHIP

Become the sole sponsor of cerebral-palsy-career-builders.com.

Reach an audience consisting of
moms with a college degree who are working outside of home, 25 to 40 years old, who recognize the importance of career development in their youngsters with unexpected challenges who have at least an average IQ.

These moms are active on Facebook and Twitter. Some have a blog about parenting a special needs child. They recognize the power of storytelling as a learning tool that can be helpful in parenting. They are book readers and participate in book clubs (in-person and online).

With the right supports (emotionally, psychologically and intellectually), their youngsters have a stab at integrated employment. They recognize useful materials designed to help them be more effective parents are not always free, and they are willing to pay for them.

They value lessons from personal experiences of those who have transformed disability into a positive instead of negative aspect of their lives.

This sole site sponsorship includes an ad-free Hello Bar at the very top of each of the 140 pages of my site, cerebral-palsy-career-builders.com. Your customized Hello Bar can be linked to your website, blog, eStore or a review page of your product or service such as the one I developed with the marketers of AntzFree

EXCLUSIVE-CATEGORY SITE SPONSORSHIP

A more economical option is to share sponsorship of my website with four other organizations based on exclusivity by product/service category.

I'm limiting this option to five sponsors -- one for each of these five categories: assistive technology, clothing, exercise, navigation and learning.

That dilutes the effects of competitive clutter and makes your efforts more effective in building an audience within your niche market as a cerebral-palsy-career-builders.com partner.

My exclusive-category site sponsorships entitle you to one icon/graphic/photo on the third right column on each of the 140 pages of my site, cerebral-palsy-career-builders.com. That graphic can be linked to your website, blog, eStore etc. or a review page of your product or service such as the one I developed with the marketers of AntzFree.

Note: The current icons in that space are place holders only to demonstrate site sponsorship possibilities. For more detail about exclusive-category site sponsorships, contact me, using the form below.
