COMPLETE SURVEY

 

We recently engaged journalist and communications specialist, Lisa Clarke, to develop plain language research summaries on recent research published in our two journals: Journal of Intellectual and Developmental Disability (JIDD) and Research and Practice in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (RAPIDD) about employment of people with intellectual disability.

We have now released three research summaries on this topic.

The third, and final article on employment, summaries the key messages from an article published in RAPIDD 2018 which investigated staff knowledge and use of appropriate training strategies, and the perceptions of employees with intellectual disabilities of the on-the-job training.

The second, summarises the key messages from an article published in 2019 in JIDD which highlights problems with transition to work programs failing to result in jobs and poses the question, are people with intellectual disability being endlessly prepared for work, but never actually getting a job? 

The first, summarises the key messages from two articles published in 2018 in JIDD which identify the proven benefits of employing people with intellectual disability and poses the question: why aren’t more organisations doing this?
