- Increase their opportunities to enter the world of work, and
- Lead productive, integrated and independent lives within their communities.
Judith Imperatore’s work gives special educators, students, and their families a realistic awareness of career options, and helps students with disabilities improve their self-awareness and motivation. Her work also facilitates the development of realistic short- and long-term goals for adult living that are individualized for each student, and that include his or her particular capabilities and interests.
Additionally, she is an experienced advocate who can advise and testify to ensure special needs children are receiving the services they are entitled to by law (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act).
