In Nebraska and elsewhere, individuals with disabilities should be receiving their education, vocational training, and employment in the same schools, training programs, businesses, and industries as individuals without disabilities, Generally, this requires some specific planning on the part of schools, generic job training programs, and employers. Such support may mean a minor modification in the environment, the acquisition of an aide, or financial assistance. By developing these support services, individuals with disabilities will not be limited to the few vocational opportunities offered by most segregated vocational workshops, but they will have access to a variety of career options.
