The Starkloff Career Academy shared the best practices for working with students with disabilities at Webster University’s Serving All conference. An attentive audience of 40 campus career center staff and leadership from regional colleges and universities were invited to attend this full-day event on October 26.
As part of the conference’s theme of providing support to students and communities of diverse backgrounds, Starkloff Career Academy Director Susan Menhard, Youth Transition Coordinator Sarah Schwegel and Adult Career Services Coordinator Jason Hartsfield spoke to the audience. They empowered all with tools and techniques they can utilize when discussing disability, disclosure, career paths and self-advocacy with their students.
“The team at Starkloff Disability Institute shared etiquette and common courtesies when engaging with people who have disabilities in the workplace,” John Link, Director of the Career Planning and Development Department at Webster University said. “I was excited to learn about the Starkloff Career Academy and how much of an impact this service is to individuals with disabilities.”
The Starkloff Career Academy would like to thank Webster University for inviting us to be a part of their program.
