Employment Outreach Program

The Council’s TV and radio media campaign educates employers, individuals with disabilities, family members and provider agencies about the benefits of having people with developmental disabilities as part of the community-based workforce.

People with disabilities make excellent, dedicated and hard-working employees. Your recognition of the importance of a diverse workforce makes you a valued partner in the promotion of the inclusion of people with disabilities.

To become involved in employing people with disabilities contact your local Louisiana Rehabilitation Services office; click here to find a Regional office in your area.
