Project SEARCH? is a total immersion program for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities that takes place entirely at a host business over the course of nine months. Interns have the opportunity to complete three 10-12 week internships in a variety of departments. The Project SEARCH? program is unique in that it is business led, and built upon a model of effective collaboration between business, education, adult services, and vocational rehabilitation. With over 300 programs in 42 states and five countries, employment outcomes average nearly 70%. An overview of the model and outcome data will be presented. OBJECTIVES: At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to: a) Describe the value of business and multi-agency collaboration that leads to meaningful employment opportunities; b) Identify non-traditional jobs that are being performed by individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities; c) Summarize effective strategies for transition from school to work and adult day programs to work.
