speak with districts about ramping up for the 21st century
education teachers and directors have asked me several times lately:
What will the role of adults with special needs be in the new economy? In
particular, how do we prepare students with cognitive disabilities to
participate and function in this new era?
Although assistive technologies can actually help some individuals
with disabilities be productive learners / workers, I believe the concern here
is that many of the lower-skill jobs traditionally held by employable adults
with cognitive disabilities may go overseas where wages and benefits are
My knowledge of workforce training for students with cognitive disabilities
is virtually nil. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
