Ohio's Path to Employment First

"Ohio's Path to Employment First", summarizes the activities that have been implemented since Governor Kasich signed the Employment First Executive Order in March 2012. Long-range planning has taken place with broad stakeholder input, and future activities have been planned to support the ongoing paradigm shift in our culture to one that truly recognizes and embraces the contributions and capabilities of people with developmental disabilities.
