Integrated Employment Toolkit

 



The Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) in the U.S. Department of Labor has identified integrated employment as “as the desired employment goal for youth and adults with disabilities.” ODEP defines integrated employment as “jobs held by people with disabilities in typical workplace settings where the majority of persons employed are not persons with disabilities, where they earn at least minimum wage, and where they are paid directly by the employer. These individuals may be in jobs without dedicated support, in jobs in which they are supported to learn and perform tasks that are associated with a standard job description, or in jobs where tasks and conditions of work are customized to match the characteristics of the worker and the needs of the employer.”

ODEP’s Integrated Employment Toolkit contains “resources, reports, papers, policies, fact sheets, case studies, and discussion guides from a variety of sources to accommodate the full range of users and increase capacity and understanding about the value and potential of integrated employment. It is organized by different audiences or perspectives. Within each audience, there are key, commonly-asked questions to guide the user to the appropriate materials.”
