Employment for Individuals with Developmental Disabilities
DDD counsels individuals who are interested in employment to first approach the New Jersey Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services (DVRS). (Individuals currently enrolled in a day program may also take advantage of this opportunity at any time.) DVRS is a valuable resource for people with developmental disabilities because:
  • DVRS is federally mandated to assist individuals with disabilities who are seeking employment.
  • If DVRS believes it can help an individual, it will provide a range of services, including a job coach. The goal is to help the graduate compete for, secure and maintain employment in the regular job market.

DVRS will do an assessment to determine if they can assist the individual.

Other Day Services
There are many ways an individual can participate in day services. These include:
  • employment
  • a day program
  • self-directed day services
  • a combination of any of the above
