We Have Wrapped Up PIE
The Partnerships in Employment Systems Change Project (PIE), a 5 year initiative focused on employment systems change, wrapped up on December 30, 2016. In collaboration with ACCES-VR, OPWDD, NYSED P-12 OSE, and DDPC, we worked on a number of different projects that addressed barriers to employment for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
One of the main initiatives supported through PIE was the development of www.MyPathNY.org, an interactive web-based tool that supports individuals with IDD as they transition from school and other places to a competitive wage-paying job in the community. The site is unique in that it is individualized and connects each user to systems and resources in New York State based on where they are on their path to employment.
A video was recently produced that reviews how the website works and will teach you how to use the resource most effectively. Email Kaitlyn Richardson with questions or for additional resources.
