Expectations Drive Outcomes: Lessons in Promoting Employment and Systems Change
Presentations from the APHSA 2013 National Policy Forum
For over a decade, state Medicaid Infrastructure Grant projects spearheaded transformation in policy, programs, system-building, and service delivery in order to change expectations and outcomes for employment of people with disabilities. This session shared key experiences and lessons learned from these efforts, and translated these lessons for employment of youth and adults with diverse needs. Panelists from California and Maryland also examined what it takes to sustain long-term systems-change initiatives that foster employment, self-determination, and independence.
