Webinar: Apps and Ethics: Using Technology to Faciliate Effective Productivity (5/3/12)

Date: Thursday, May 3, 2012

Time:  2pm - 3pm EST

Presenter:  Catherine Burzio  

Description: The world of technology is growing and changing at rapid rates. It’s hard to keep up with what is available, let alone know what is worth the time and effort of a download. Spend time walking through Apps and tools which may be used in the vocational evaluation and rehabilitation counseling settings, with individuals or small groups, or for document/information management in the field. With the use of technology, it is common for ethics to be challenged when working across multiple agencies in support of individuals. How then do we ensure non- maleficience and fidelity while working effectively to meet deadlines? Participants will review and discuss rehabilitation counseling standards of ethics and apply evaluator principles to real world scenarios.  

Presenter Bio: Catherine Burzio, MA established Viable Vocations in 2011 to provide Education and Transition consulting service for students, families, schools and organizations. As Transition Coordinator for PEATCs NEXT STEPS Transition project, she helped to establish a nationally recognized program funded by the U.S. Department of Education Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA). She is a former Transition Specialist for a local school division. Catherine was appointed by former Virginia governor Tim Kaine to serve on the Virginia State Rehabilitation Council for the Blind and Vision Impaired, ending in 2011. She currently serves on the Alumni Board of Directors for Shenandoah University, The Chromosome 18 Registry & Research Society Executive Board as the Vice President for Member Relations and VECAP (Vocational Evaluation and Career Assessment Professionals) as the Communications Chair.

Through her work in Transition, Catherine has established national working relationships with the IDEA Partnership Community of Practice on Transition and the National Secondary Transition Technical Assistance Center (NSTTAC). Through these partnerships, Catherine has worked with several states and territories, including Wisconsin, Delaware, Pennsylvania, California, the Virgin Islands, Florida and the Bureau of India Education to provide technical assistance regarding transitioning youth and their families. Catherine received her master’s degree in Transition Special Education - Collaborative Vocational Evaluation Training from The George Washington University in Washington, DC. Her areas of interest include Families in Transition, Social Capital and Ethics and Technology. Using both personal and professional experience, Catherine encourages collaborative partnerships between families, students, educators and service providers, leading to more effective transition outcomes for youth. She is the grateful mom of four children – Ashton, Pauline, JB and August.

(Don't want to run a Sibshop, but would like to talk about sibs' unique issues? Join us just for the first day!)

As those who have attended will tell you, Sibshop trainings are rich events! In the course of two days, you’ll hear poignant stories, share laughs, meet courageous sibs, and learn practical advice.

A big part of any Sibshop training is the demonstration Sibshop, where you will participate in great Sibshop games and discussion activities with remarkably cool and thoughtful 8-13 year old brothers and sisters of kids with special needs.

These trainings and workshops are open to parents, adult sibs, and any service provider concerned about families. If you’d like to host a Sibshop training in your community, please write or call us at 206.297.6368. We’d be happy to help in any way we can.

You can always learn where we will be offering trainings and workshops in the days to come by visiting our homepage or online training calendar.
