Are Individuals with Severe Mental Retardation and Multiple Disabilities Cost-Efficient To Serve via Supported Employment Programs?
Cimera, Robert Evert
Mental Retardation, v36 n4 p280-92 Aug 1998
The relationship between cost-efficiency and personal characteristics of 111 supported employees were examined. When sheltered workshops were used as alternative placements, supported employees with high IQS benefited more from employment within the community than did supported employees with lower IQS. From society's perspective, African-American and male supported employees were more cost-efficient. (Author/CR)
