On the Job: Stories from Youth with Disabilities



The Waisman Center (WI UCEDD/LEND) has compiled several stories from youth with disabilites.  All feature youth with Developmental Disabilities who! began working in competitive-wage, community-based jobs early (between the ages of 16-18) and who used natural supports, as well as some paid supports at first, to be successful. The stories include the community, employer, school, and family factors that led to the youths' success on the job.
