New Hampshire is a high performer in the integrated employment of people with ID/DD. This case study was written to provide a practical resource for states trying to increase the integrated employment of people with ID/DD. The report describes the history of deinstitutionalization in New Hampshire and details three themes framing the success of integrated employment in New Hampshire: (1) redirection and continued refinement of fundamental values through investment in training and technical assistance, (2) restructuring developmental disabilities service administration to emphasize local control and innovation, and (3) shifting to quality outcomes.
