dc.description.abstractBy providing appropriate and reasonable supports that require minimal time or cost, individuals with intellectual and development disabilities (IwIDD) can thrive in employment, including in business or military (Werner & Hochman, 2017a; Werner & Hochman, 2017b), obtaining agency and independence, as well as acquire new skills and social connections (Kocman & Weber, 2018; Timmons et al., 2011). Likewise, as long as care is taken to set clear expectations (Kocman et al., 2017), organizations will acquire a capable employee, as well as enhance morale, engagement, and team cohesiveness (Werner & Hochman, 2017a). Finally, family members of IwIDD also value employment as it develops pride, independence, purpose, and community engagement (Carter et al., 2023). Altogether, these perspectives provide strong support for addressing barriers to employment for IwIDD. This research advances understanding that employment of IwIDD is both a morally good choice as benefits IwIDD, and one that benefits others, including employing organizations.
