(the following is an excerpt of an email about the discussion)

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) brings significant opportunity to improve services for individuals with disabilities, especially youth with disabilities. There have been no greater changes to law affecting our programs since the 1992 Rehabilitation Act amendments.

If you work in partnership with DOR on our services to youth or provide services to young consumers eligible for DOR services, we welcome your participation at the first of a four-part series of program specific public forums established to share information and collect stakeholder feedback on the changes to our core services under WIOA.

We look forward to discussing topics such as:

·      Potential modifications to Transition Partnership Program (TPP) contracts

·      Development of additional services to youth with disabilities

·      DOR’s enhanced role in transition services
