ThinkWork 44 Series:

Defining the Employment Research Agenda

Date: August 29, 2017

Time: 3:00 - 3:44pm ET

In the fall of 2017, researchers from the Institute for Community Inclusion (ICI) will lead a series of online discussions on the "State of the Science" (SoS) in employment for people with IDD. We'll be looking at ways to engage people with disabilities, their families, and their services providers to think differently about employment and the future of employment research. 

This 44 webinar kicks off the SOS. We will share the research findings behind the SoS initiative, and provide information on activities you can get involved in to make your opinions and experiences heard.

The SoS is a chance for the ICI to share our research around employment. It’s also an opportunity for us to learn about the strategies service providers, family members, and self-advocates are using to support people with intellectual and development disabilities to build fulfilling careers.


What is this research about? 

  • The ways individuals and families are involved in employment
  • The capacity of service providers to delivery quality supports
  • The ways state policy and practices are being used to support the above

The 44 Series takes a fresh look at issues and opportunities around employment for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The sessions encourage creative thinking, and provoke reactions. Each conversation brings an original perspective to topics around IDD and employment.
