Washington State is recognized as a high performer in 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.  It details five factors that led to high performance in Washington state, including: (1) a coherent values base, (2) clear focus on employment outcomes at the county level, (3) flexible, outcomes-oriented funding, (4) consistent investment in training and technical assistance, and (5) a strong network of leaders.
