Employment outcomes for students with disabilities lag behind their non-disabled peers. For students with functional mental disabilities, multiple disabilities, and autism, employment opportunities and outcomes are even worse. KentuckyWorks, in partnership with the Community Work Transition Program, is piloting an approach in two Kentucky school districts (Montgomery County & Simpson County) to support youth and young adults with significant disabilities in finding competitive employment.
