MA Blueprint for Success: Partnerships

Massachusetts

"In July 2013, the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) Commissioner Elin Howe appointed a group of disability providers, advocates and DDS leaders to examine day and employment support programs for adults with intellectual disabilities (ID). The Employment Workgroup ‟s goal has been to develop a five-year plan to increase both inclusive employment opportunities and higher earning potential for individuals with ID, while phasing out the use of sheltered workshops.  The Workgroup has achieved consensus on the following plan, which is reflected in proposed changes, goals, recommendations, and timelines to achieve the desired outcomes.”
