 Full Description: 
This 9-page guide begins with an overview of best practices in helping people with intellectual/developmental disabilities to reach their commonly held goals of finding community-based jobs, and leading self-determined lives. The guide highlights strategies that professionals can use that will encourage and support people in finding community-based employment.

After reviewing traditional day and employment services, the guide introduces the following options people with intellectual/developmental disabilities have for community-based employment:
-Integrated employment
-Pre-vocational services
-Community-based non-work services.

For each option, the guide does a nice job of explaining what the option looks like and provides a set of equality indicators.
