Policies and Programs

“Individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD) or acquired brain disorders (ABD) are valued employees in our state economy. Their skills and abilities help to strengthen the workplace, drive innovation and better serve and represent the community. For an employee with a disability, employment provides opportunities for economic, social and emotional growth. Unfortunately, individuals with IDD or ABD are underrepresented in our workforce.

The NH Department of Health and Human Services, Bureau of Developmental Services, in partnership with Area Agencies, service providers/vendors and businesses, are working to expand the opportunities for individuals with disabilities to become valued members of our workforce and to enjoy all the benefits that employment provides. There are a wide variety of resources and supports available to both the individual with a disability and employers to support the vision of a fully inclusive workforce in New Hampshire.”
