New Integrated Employment Toolkit

The U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) offers a new online toolkit that includes discussion guides and answers to frequently-asked-questions for people looking for jobs, employers, community employment agencies and others. They have developed this Integrated Employment Toolkit to provide valuable information as individuals, community employment agencies, policymakers and others pursue integrated employment as the desired employment goal for youth and adults with disabilities. Integrated employment places both youth and adults in regular jobs in their communities, along with any needed supports, so they can earn a decent wage. It increases capacity and understanding about the value and potential of integrated employment. For more information please visit the ODEP website at http://www.dol.gov/odep/ietoolkit/ .
