Postsecondary Inclusion for Individuals with an Intellectual Disability and its Effects on Employment

Postsecondary Inclusion for Individuals with an Intellectual Disability and its Effects on Employment

In this comparative case report, graduates from two types of PSE programs for individuals with ID are surveyed regarding employment outcomes and other personal developments. The results from each postsecondary program are compared with one another and also with a comparison group of individuals with IDs who did not attend a postsecondary program (utilizing the 2009 National Longitudinal Transition Study 2). This case demonstrates significant positive employment outcomes for individuals with IDs who attend postsecondary programs compared to those who do not attend such programs and highlights similarities and differences regarding outcomes of the two program types under consideration.
