Employment and people with developmental disabilities

Help with Listen Feature Help with Listen Feature

This six-hour self-study online course is designed to help people with developmental disabilities find meaningful jobs and plan a career. In this course, participants will create a resume or portfolio of their strengths, skills, and interests; learn how to network and identify potential employers; prepare for an interview; and understand the hiring process. The course has been updated to include information on ways that people with autism and other developmental disabilities can find competitive, meaningful employment in the emerging “digital economy.” Last updated in 2011. A product of Partners in Policymaking.

An EZ Read version of the online course is also available. This version contains the same information as the regular course along with exercises and exams but uses icons (visuals) to help the reviewer understand concepts and facilitate the learning process.
