Oregon - From the Department of Justice Findings Letter (2012)

Oregon

“We have concluded that the State is failing to provide employment and vocational services to persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the most 
integrated setting appropriate to their needs, in violation of the ADA.  The State plans, structures, and administers its system of providing employment and vocational services in a manner that delivers such services primarily in segregated sheltered workshops, rather than in integrated community employment.  Sheltered workshops segregate individuals from the community and provide little or no opportunity to interact with persons without disabilities, other than paid staff…  most persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities receiving employment and vocational services from the state remain unnecessarily – and often indefinitely – confined to segregated sheltered workshops..”
