Career Learning for Adult Self-Sufficiency (CLASS)

Charting the Course: Supporting the Career Development of Youth with Learning Disabilities

Posted by Mindy Larson - On December 21, 2011 (EST)

This Guide was developed by the National Collaborative on Workforce and Disability for Youth (NCWD/Youth), an organization charged with assisting education and workforce development organizations to improve the successful transition of youth with disabilities into the workplace. NCWD/Youth prepared this Guide, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), in response to the overrepresentation of youth and young adults with learning disabilities in a wide array of government-supported programs—adult education, vocational rehabilitation, welfare, corrections, and others. Many of these young people may not even be aware that they have a learning disability, although they may know that they have not done as well as many of their peers in traditional classrooms and in work and social settings.
