About this event

Digitability's award-winning work-ready training program was created by Michele McKeone, M. Ed., a special education teacher who taught students with a wide-range of cognitive and behavioral needs at South Philadelphia High School for more than seven years.

While teaching she realized that students with disabilities were pigeonholed into unemployment or underemployment. Her observation mirrored the 70% unemployment rate for people with cognitive disabilities. Michele recognized that in order for her students to achieve their independence and obtain employment, they would need to overcome society's immense social and psychological barriers to achieve their independence.
