This website, supporting the integrated employment of youth with IDD, was created by Tennessee’s PIE project for various audiences, including youth with IDD, their families, educators, other direct service professionals, employers, and local public policy analysts and administrators. It describes the TennesseeWorks partnership; provides links and a searchable database for a comprehensive array of relevant information, resources, and training opportunities; and features success stories about TN youth, families, educators, employers and communities. The website will also provide data on employment and postsecondary education outcomes and participation for youth with IDD as well as the results of a survey on TN youth and family expectations.
