All should be prepared for careers

"People with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities can be competitively employed in their communities. They should be supported to make informed choices about their work and careers and have the resources to seek, obtain, and be successful in integrated community employment. . . All should be prepared for careers and have the opportunity for jobs alongside workers without disabilities based upon their preferences, interests, and strengths."
