2. Barriers and Challenges

Improving Employment Outcomes

There are many people like myself with developmental disabilities that have at or above average intelligence that need help with: educational, vocational, home and community based services who are often found ineligible for services or the services do not exist to meet our needs. The federal government needs to be more focused and prepared to address these needs. There must be greater investment in our public education system(including post secondary) in areas of college preparation, vocational preparation for students and adults with disabilities.

There needs to be greater collaboration between federal departments, legislative, and executive branches to develop legislation, executive orders for program funding/creation and strategic plans to meet the educational and vocational needs of individuals with disabilities.
