Many of us consider our jobs highly important as it not only provides a steady source of income but also give us a sense of purpose and allows us to contribute to our community. The same can be said for individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD). Unfortunately, adults with IDD lack access to employment opportunities and resources to earn money and get out of or avoid poverty.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 19.3% of adults with IDD were employed in 2019. To bridge the gap, many businesses aspire to become DDD providers to support individuals with IDD. Through agencies offering consulting services in Phoenix, Arizona, DDD providers can increase employment opportunities in the community.
Through the assistance of experienced consultants, DDD providers can create and negotiate non-competitive jobs for adults with IDD. These jobs can be customized to put a disabled individual’s strengths to work while providing an important service to their employer and the community at large.
Considering there are several ways to make a living, limiting employment opportunities to inflexible job descriptions can increase unemployment rates for individuals with IDD. Through customized employment opportunities and restructuring, job creation is made possible to support adults with IDD.
Consulting Experts LLC is a leading consulting firm in Arizona that is focused on supporting new and existing agencies in acquiring a DDD contract. Browse our site or give us a call for more information about our services.
