Work Innovations and Opportunity Act (WIOA)
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) is a federal law that helps youth and adults get employment training and support services. It also helps match employers with the workers they need. The goal of WIOA is for everyone, including those with disabilities, to have competitive and integrated community employment.
Pre Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) are a major part of the law. Students with disabilities should be receiving these services per their IEP or transition plan.
*If you haven't heard your IEP team talk about these...ASK them!
*PLEASE share if you have had a positive transition planning experience or if your student is receiving any of these Pre Employment Transition services!
