Evaluation of the Pathways to Careers Program

The SourceAmerica Pathways to Careers (Pathways) program helps people with intellectual or developmental disabilities and people with autism spectrum disorder obtain competitive integrated employment aligned with their skills, interests, strengths, and abilities. The Pathways service model is reliant on partnerships with employer organizations in the private, nonprofit, and public sectors that represent a range of career areas and will host interns and ultimately employ participants, if the internship is successful. To achieve permanent employment, employer partners must offer participants job training; ongoing employment supports, including natural supports provided by co-workers in the workplace; and a work environment that meets participants’ conditions for success. In this case study, we examine the Davis School District in Davis County, Utah, to understand the factors that have contributed to its successful partnership with the Pathways program.
