The Institute for Community Inclusion (ICI) will be leading a series of "State of the Science" (SoS) discussions, looking at ways to engage people with disabilities, their families, and their services providers in creating employment options. 
 
In this kickoff webinar, ICI staff will share the research findings behind the SoS initiative, and some of the events you can get involved in during the SoS.

The SoS is a chance for the ICI to share our research around employment. It's also an opportunity for us to learn about the strategies service providers, family members, and self-advocates are using to support people with intellectual and development disabilities to build fulfilling careers.

What is this research about? 

  • The ways individuals and families are involved in employment
  • The capacity of service providers to delivery quality supports
  • The ways state policy and practices are being used to support the above

The SoS is run by the ICI's Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) on Advancing Employment for Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. The RRTC is part of ThinkWork, an array of projects related to employment for people with intellectual disabilities.
