Family Matters: Job Loss & COVID-19 Findings Now Available

Families play a critical and ongoing role in the lives of their family members, including assisting, encouraging, and supporting them to secure and maintain inclusive employment. Recent research into the impact of the pandemic on the employment status of job seekers/employees with an intellectual disability has not provided sufficient coverage on the experiences of people with an intellectual disability and their families who have experienced job loss.

 

This project worked with families and self-advocates to better understand the impact of job loss during the pandemic and considerations for future supports for families and individuals.
