Laying the Path for Career Success – ODEP Blog

November is National Career Development Month, and Maria Town, policy advisor in the Office of Disability Employment Policy, posted a November 13 blog, “Laying the Path for Career Success,” about the importance of Individualized Learning Plans (ILPs) in helping students explore the possibilities for life after high school. 

 

In the blog, Town tells the story of Carla, a recent high school graduate who used her ILP throughout her school career to assess her interests, guide her coursework, and participate in work-based learning experiences.  “Through her ILP, Carla’s teachers helped her and her parents discover her interests, set goals and identify what she needs to do to achieve them, whether with the help of others or on her own,” explained Town.
