Over the course of the past several decades, the disability field has made steady progress in moving toward systems of supports for people with intellectual disability and increased self-determination in life choices. However, meaningful, competitive employment in the community on a large scale is a goal that is yet to be realized. This book looks at the current status of our efforts to achieve this goal by examining the following areas: emerging best practices in employment, the return-to-work process for disability beneficiaries, transition planning, vocational assessment and preparation, supports in competitive employment, postsecondary education, service learning, and planning and supporting employment.
