Employment and disabilities
Rosemary Lysaght, expert in intellectual disabilities and perceived discrimination in the workplace, can discuss the upcoming Statistics Canada report on changes in the labour market for people with and without disabilities, and their barriers to employment. The report will be released on Thursday July 24.
A professor with the School of Rehabilitation Therapy, Dr. Lysaght looks at how barriers to inclusive employment can be reduced, as well as how employment supports are provided to workers with intellectual disabilities. She recently co-authored a study on public views for including people with intellectual disabilities in the workforce, in the Journal of Vocational Rehabilitation.
