Center Update: Strong Center for Developmental Disabilities Develops NDEAM Employment Videos Promoting Inclusive Hiring (NY UCEDD)

January 6, 2016

Strong Center for Developmental Disabilities (SCDD) in partnership with the Golisano Foundation, ACCES-VR, RochesterWorks!, Heritage Christian Services, Lifetime Assistance and the Arc of Monroe developed a series of short employment videos which feature individuals with IDD working in various roles with local employers in Rochester, NY.

The short video segments were commissioned to promote inclusive hiring and highlight the value of the diverse perspectives individuals with disabilities bring to the workforce. The videos were launched in October in celebration of National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) and are accessible through the Strong Center for Developmental Disabilities website and Facebook.
