There are lots of supports available to help people with intellectual disability get work. This website can help you navigate supports to get into open employment. The different supports include:
- the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
- Disability Employment Services (DES)
- the Disability Support Pension (DSP).
Everyone’s way into employment is different. People also need different information and supports at different stages of their life.
We have organised the information on this website into different life stages. Start your employment pathway here.
We’ve based the information on this website on current evidence in Australia. You can read this evidence here.
Every person, whatever their degree of intellectual disability, can work in open employment, but you and your family need the information and resources to make it happen.
