National Disability Employment Awareness Month in October celebrates the significant contributions of workers with disabilities. At Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health, we recognize the skills and talents of all individuals, and believe that youth and adults with disabilities should be given the same opportunities for inclusion as those without disabilities.
“Ultimately, individuals with disabilities just want to be seen and heard, and it is our responsibility as human beings to make this happen by being inclusive, supportive, encouraging and compassionate,” said National Director of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Services Stewart Shear, Ph.D.
While great strides have been made in employing youth and adults with disabilities, more work needs to done to ensure these individuals have the opportunity to reach their fullest potential. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 19.1 percent of individuals with disabilities were employed in 2018. In contrast, the employment-population ratio for those without a disability was 65.9 percent.
In addition, the unemployment rate for people with disabilities was 8 percent in 2018, versus 3.7 percent for those without a disability.
