"The Best Employees Are Often Overlooked: Incorporating Adults with IDD into Your Business."
Sarra Dennehy, Best Buddies State Director for Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, will share some facts and stories about the need for hiring individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the workforce. Her program, JOBS, places focus beyond the typical jobs in which a person with IDD might be placed. Best Buddies focuses on finding work that matches the job seeker’s interests and talents.
Originally from San Diego, Sarra now lives in New Hampshire with her three children. She believes that every human being, regardless of “ability” deserves equal opportunities and access to friendships, leadership opportunities and employment.
