Division of Developmental Disabilities

Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities make many valuable contributions to the workplace and to our economy, and employment is an important option for individuals with I/DD who are able to and interested in working independently or with supports. New Jersey is an Employment First state, and competitive employment should be openly discussed with every individual receiving services through the Division of Developmental Disabilities. 

DDD promotes a person-centered planning process for individuals with I/DD to explore their interests, skills, dreams and goals, including employment goals. Working with their Support Coordinator and other members of their service planning team, individuals can identify services and service providers to assist them in working toward their goals.
