With Paula Fasciano, Jed Seifert, Matthew Fasciano, Benjamin Fasciano, Darren Seifert, and Samantha Rhodes
Meaningful employment is important to parents and self-advocates! In celebration of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, we hosted a dynamic panel that shared strategies and their individual employment successes. This one-hour Q&A session, moderated by NFXF Executive Director Hilary Rosselot, is filled with inspiration, insight, and helpful tips. Self-advocate panelists Matthew Fasciano, Benjamin Fasciano, Darren Seifert, and Samantha Rhodes, shared details about their various jobs and what they enjoy most about their work.
Paula Fasciano and Jed Seifert, panelists and members of the Fragile X community, are employing individuals of all abilities. Paula and Jed shared their challenges and success strategies in employing individuals with disabilities. They both shared how one of the most powerful strategies is focusing on identifying the individual’s strengths, then creating supports based on their strengths to promote success in their assigned tasks and roles.
