This study addresses the challenge of individuals with learning disabilities (LD) in obtaining and maintaining employment after high school.

The methodology consisted of gathering qualitative data from employer surveys and interviews documenting their experience and reporting results of the individuals with LD job placements. Participants included 56 students with learning disabilities in job placements with 55 employers who were trained in quality job indicators. The information includes the strategies used for effective employer quality job indicator training to support the individuals with LD to successfully maintain the job placements.
