ENTREPRENEURSHIP CURRICULUM & TRAINING
Through the Chicagoland Entrepreneurship Education for People with Disabilities (CEED) program, I have worked with a panel of experts to develop a comprehensive, plain language curriculum and training for entrepreneurs with disabilities as well as providers from both disability community agencies and Small Business Development Centers (SBDC). This spring and summer we are holding the training sessions, and by the end will have an evidence-based training that has been evaluated and is replicable and scalable.
