Seeing a Brighter Future: Preparing for Meaningful Employment
with Dr. Harold L. Kleinert and our own Patti Logsdon
Seeing a Brighter Future, developed by Kentucky Works, is a 2-hour training curriculum to inspire parents of children with
significant intellectual disabilities that employment is possible and can be a meaningful part of their son or daughter’s life. Participants
will each receive the Brighter Futures Worksheet to guide them through each of the structured activities. This curriculum is designed
to enable families to create action steps for youth of any age to prepare for the world of work.
