Workforce, Career and Technical Education, and Higher Education

Written May 25, 2014

Federal funding supports workforce training, career and technical education, and postsecondary education opportunities for millions of Americans, including students and adults with learning disabilities. These programs provide information, resources, training and educational services designed to secure and improve employment opportunities as well as financial aid to attend an institution of higher education to pursue a certificate or degree. In total these programs create much of the network that individuals use to receive training and improve their educational skills with the goal of acquiring employment or improving their employment situation.

NCLD offers Policy Recommendations to ensure that the maximum number of students and adults with LD are employed. Download your FREE copy of NCDL’s Issue Brief: Workforce, Career and Technical Education, and Higher Education
