Institute for Community Inclusion
This report summarizes available national data on educational, employment and economic outcomes for youth and young adults with intellectual disabilities (ID) over the years 2000-2010. These data can be used to benchmark progress in improving these outcomes for young adult population across the country and within individual states. Data is reported separately for two age groups of young adults (16-21 and 22-30) in order to capture possible differences between youth likely to still be receiving school services (through age 21) and those who have moved on from the education system. (Contains 11 tables and 1 footnote.) [Contributors include Julie Bershadsky, Sarah Taub, Frank Smith, Alberto Migliore, Debra Hart, and David Hoff. Funding for this paper was provided in part by the Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, Administration for Community Living, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.]
