Before closing, I want to share with you that today, the Rehabilitation Services Administration released a document entitled A Framework for Community Engagement: A Pathway to Competitive Integrated Employment.  It is targeted to policymakers and service providers and was prepared by the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services, the Department of Labor Office of Disability Employment Policy, the Administration for Community Living, and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.  Every one of the suggestions in this framework are things that ACCSES members have been doing for a long time. 
 
I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday!  Have a great rest of the week and weekend.
 
Kate
