The Connecticut Department of Developmental Services is ramping up its website with the launch of new web pages aimed at employment and day services information.
The agency credits the pages to Connect-Ability Medicaid Infrastructure Grant funding that allows the hiring of consultants from the University of Massachusetts' Institute for Community Inclusion to help with this project.
According to DDS, the collaboration also allowed the department to produce an employment guide and other resources for families and others who receive agency support.
The projects come a year after the developmental services agency adopted an employment policy aimed at helping individuals with intellectual disabilities find competitive employment. The agency says it is focused on curbing the downward trend of these individuals seeking competitive employment.
