On Friday, March 30th, Ticket to Work hosted the inaugural Disability Employment Chat (#DEChat) on Twitter. In honor of Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, our topic was “Career Help for People with Developmental Disabilities.” Sharon Lewis, Commissioner of the Administration on Developmental Disabilities, Administration for Children and Families, Department of Health and Human Services, helped us answer questions and shared resources. We would like to thank Sharon as well as everyone who participated in the discussion! Overall, 22 people participated, and the discussion ran to over 100 Tweets!
