Family Employment Awareness Training (FEAT) is designed for families, their young adults (age 14 - 21) with developmental disabilities, and the professionals who support them.

FEAT is presented by family support staff of the Sherlock Center on Disabilities. All are family members of people with disabilities and have years of experience in supporting individuals and families in their transition from school to employment. See information below regarding goals and training topics covered at each session. There is no cost to attend.

FEAT Goals:
  1. To raise families' expectations for community integrated employment of the young adult with a disability.
  2. To increase knowledge of state and federal resources to support the employment of the young adult.

FEAT, developed at The University of Kansas Beach Center on Disability, has been researched and proven to be effective in meeting these goals. The Paul V. Sherlock Center on Disabilities, in partnership with RIPIN, and with support from the RI Department of Education, has adapted FEAT for use in Rhode Island.
