Abstract

The “Access to Integrated Employment: National Data Collection on Day and Employment Services for Citizens with Developmental Disabilities” project is a longitudinal study describing day and employment services nationwide for individuals with developmental disabilities. The project will:

  • Study the effectiveness of state developmental disabilities agencies and vocational rehabilitation agencies in promoting full inclusion of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities through employment and other community activities
  • Describe national trends in the employment and economic status of youth and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities on a state and national basis
  • Highlight practices and outcomes in the transition from school to employment and promote policy enhancing integrated employment at both the systems and customer levels
  • Develop guidelines for community-based non-work activities
  • Implement www.statedata.info, a website illustrating service system investment in day and employment services, and www.realworkstories.org, a website featuring successes of youth with intellectual and developmental disabilities in paid jobs in their communities
  • Provide an online catalog of innovative state-level strategies that influence policy and facilitate access to integrated employment
  • Collaborate with the University of Minnesota and the University of Colorado to show targeted current year and longitudinal data on the project website
