Jobs continue to require higher skilled work making postsecondary education increasingly more essential. Due to legislative and cultural shifts over the last two decades, students with ID have more opportunities than ever before to receive training in institutes of higher education. To what extend do PSE programs for students with ID lead to competitive employment outcomes? This webinar will discuss the types of PSE programs available to students with ID in college settings, the emphasis PSE programs place on employment, and data on employment outcomes gathered from peer reviewed databases and grey literature sources.
