Helping young people with intellectual disabilities make the transition to employment

University of Technology Sydney (UTS)  and Onemda (Disability Services & Support Organisation, Melbourne) are undertaking research to better understand how young people (aged 15-25 years) with intellectual disabilities get work experience placements and/or maintain their employment. The findings of this research will be used to help young people make better transitions to long term employment and live even more fulfilling lives.
