All people benefit from work; work makes people better and improves lives in every way. Unfortunately, many people with Autism Spectrum Disorders are excluded from work for a variety of reasons. This interactive and dynamic session will give attendees a number of strategies which can be used to help persons with ASDs find jobs that will work for everybody involved.

Learning Objectives

In this training participants will learn to:
  • State the importance of work for all people
  • Identify the barriers to employment experienced by many people with ASD
  • Generate strategies to address barriers to employment
  • Name the three stages of career development
  • Explain strategies useful in developing jobs for persons with ASDs
  • Match jobs for persons with ASDs and create onsite support strategies

V-0011 - Virtual Tabletop Exercise Series (VTTX) – Fixed Facility - Hazardous Material (HAZMAT)

Emmitsburg, MD — You are subscribed to EMI News for FEMA. This following information has recently been updated, and is now available on http://training.fema.gov/EMI/

Exercise Description:

This exercise is the eleventh in a series of 12 Virtual Tabletop Exercises (VTTX) that will be offered monthly by the Emergency Management Institute (EMI). The VTTX involves key personnel discussing simulated scenarios in an informal setting, and can be used to assess plans, policies, training, and procedures. This VTTX differs from other Tabletop exercises in that it will be conducted using Video-Teleconference (VTC) technology (not web-based), and is intended to provide an opportunity for responders across the nation to simultaneously participate in a hazard-specific facilitated discussion. Lead facilitation for the exercise will be coordinated by EMI, with local facilitation provided by the participating agency. This format will allow the common delivery of exercise materials, scenarios, modules, and discussion questions among those participating in the exercise. New to the VTTX program is the addition of an After-Action Report/Improvement Plan (AAR/IP) template for completion by the participating organization. Read more...

*ALL VETS SHOULD COPY THIS*

*Comment:** Someone has gone to a lot of trouble. If this helps one
person, then it was worthwhile. Please pass this on to all Veterans on you
e-mail list.*
*Below are web-sites that provide information on Veterans benefits and how
to file/ask for them. Accordingly, there are many sites that explain how to
obtain books, military/medical records, information and how to appeal a
denied claim with the VA. Please pass this information on to every Veteran
you know. Nearly 100% of this information is free and available for all
veterans, the only catch is: you have to ask for it, because they won't
tell you about a specific benefit unless you ask for it. You need to know
what questions to ask so the right doors open for you and then be ready to
have an advocate who is willing to work with and for you, stay in the
process, and press for your rights and your best interests.*

Hurricane Preparedness for Coastal and Inland Communities

Join us at 3:00 p.m. EDT on May 21 for a discussion of hurricane preparedness activities in coastal and inland communities.

Hurricanes can cause catastrophic damage not just to coastlines, but also several hundred miles inland. Hurricanes often produce winds exceeding 155 miles, tornado outbreaks and severe flooding. Know how to be ready. Know how to be prepared.

As a lead-in to National Hurricane Week (May 26 to June 1), FEMA will be hosting a free webinar featuring FEMA’s Federal Coordinating Officer (FCO), Michael F.
