Postsecondary Education and Employment Outcomes for Youth with Intellectual Disabilities
Authors: Alberto Migliore and John Butterworth
This one-page “Data Note” summarizes research comparing employment and income outcomes of students with intellectual disabilities who took part in postsecondary education programs, with those who did not. In a nutshell, the researchers learned that:
-Youth who had received postsecondary education had a 48% employment rate and averaged $316 in weekly earnings.
-In contrast, youth who had not received postsecondary education had a 32% employment rate and averaged $195 in weekly earnings.
As a result, this sheet validates the idea that just as with the general population, postsecondary education also results in a better employment outlook and pay scale for people with intellectual disabilities.
