Jean Winsor’s research focuses on state systems and integrated employment as well as program evaluation. Through her work she has investigated the policies and practices of states with high rates of integrated employment, the methods states use to collect data on employment outcomes, the strategies states use to promote integrated employment, and the factors that impact the choices individuals with intellectual and development disabilities (I/DD) make about employment. She is the coordinator of the National Survey of Day and Employment Programs and is engaged in the development of strategies to support individuals with I/DD to conduct qualitative research. Prior to joining ICI in 2002, she provided community-based supports to adolescents and adults with I/DD for ten years.

State Intellectual and Developmental Disability Agencies' Service Trends

In FY2010, an estimated 566,188 individuals received day or employment supports from state intellectual and developmental disability (IDD) agencies. This number grew from 458,650 in FY1999, a 23.4 percent increase. The estimated number of individuals supported in integrated employment services increased from 108,296 in FY1999 to 113,937 in FY2010, a 5.2% increase. State investment in supports continues to emphasize facility-based and non-work services rather than integrated employment services. Figure 1 shows the trends in the percentage of people served in integrated employment and facility-based and non-work settings between FY2004 and FY2010. (3/2012)
