Arkansas State Council for Developmental Disabilities Five Year State Plan for 2017
Goal #3: The Arkansas DD Council will collaborate with state agencies and community programs to improve competitive, integrated employment of Arkansans with developmental disabilities. The Council will participate and advocate the work of the Employment First Task Force to advocate for legislative and policy changes designed to increase competitive, integrated employment. Meaningful involvement by self-advocates in Employment First Initiatives will be a major part of this Goal with a request for a community partner to assist people with DD with the shift from sheltered employment to competitive, integrated employment working in round table meetings with self advocates, their families and employers.
