The unemployment rate among adults with disabilities is nearly 12 times the national average. Two out of three people with disabilities want to work, but have not been able to secure jobs because of accessibility and attitudinal barriers. Easter Seals workforce development services provide an individualized approach to assisting persons with disabilities and other needs to make informed choices and attain their employment aspirations. Easter Seals’ approach includes an array of services and supports that ultimately lead to employment. This approach is designed to identify goals, objectives, and planning needs, and providing the supports a person needs to achieve and maintain employment.
