Participants will receive intensive training in five focus areas:

Conference attendees come from all over the state of Texas and include educators, transition specialists, vocational coordinators, service agency representatives, and youth with disabilities and their families.
The Certified Employment Support Professional (CESP) is the first national certification program for employment support professionals. Job coaches, job developers, transition employment specialists, job placement personnel, and employment specialists can now be recognized for the work they do through earning the CESP credential. By passing the exam, CESPs demonstrate that they have the skills and knowledge necessary to successfully help persons with disabilities obtain and retain employment. As this is a national certification program, the CESP bring legitimacy and professionalism to the field, and validates the hard work and dedication of supportive employment professionals.
