Time and time again, employers indicate that individuals with developmental disabilities are committed and dedicated workers who possess a strong desire not only to succeed in their jobs, but also to advance in their careers. This, along with the characteristics valued most by employers – reliability, dependability, getting along with co-workers, loyalty to the company, respect for authority, are all factors used by most employers to describe workers with a developmental disability. The ability of these individuals to “get the job done” and contribute to the economic life of their community is undeniable.
