I believe we have created a system that is crippling indvduals with disbilities when origianlly it was meant to support people into the workforce.
Areas to be addressed,,,
1. Expectation that all young people with a disability will have a working lifestyle after graduation.
2.There will be a safety net for indivdiuals on SS/SSI/SSDI who work for a awhile and lose their job do to layoffs.
3.Families must be educated that a "workshop" environment is the last choice. In doing so, how do you give them peace of mind?
4. All states should be employment first.
