The employer experience: hiring young people with intellectual disability

This paper reports on the experience of employers who offer work opportunities to young people with intellectual disabilities. The paper considers three aspects of the employer experience:

  • The literature identifying effective practice that encourages employers to offer work opportunities
  • The factors that affect the decision of employers on whether to provide work for these young people; and
  • How to best meet the needs of employers in order to increase the number of job opportunities available for young people with intellectual disabilities.

The paper concludes with a set of recommendations / links to effective practice or reports.
