Professional Education and Training

An important part of Project SEARCH’s mission is education through which we can share best practices and promote continuous improvement of our programs. Our goal is to provide the tools and technical assistance needed to maximize employment outcomes for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Call for Abstracts

Each year, the Project SEARCH Annual Conference offers new opportunities for learning and sharing. Among these, we particularly value our breakout workshop sessions for the wide range of perspectives, experience, and expertise they offer.

We can’t do it without you!  Our breakout sessions are unique, honest, and innovative because they come from our own Project SEARCH programs. Please consider sharing your successful strategies,  challenges, or research findings in a Workshop Session. The goal is to create a program of offerings that will help all participants—seasoned Project SEARCH practitioners and first-time conference attendees alike—and encourage us all to fully serve our interns and improve employment outcomes. Use the registration link, above, to submit your workshop abstract.
