State Employment Leadership Network (SELN)

The State Employment Leadership Network (SELN) is a partnership of the National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services (NASDDDS) and the Institute of Community Inclusion at the University of Massachusetts Boston (ICI). The SELN was launched in 2006 to provide technical assistance and guidance to state I/DD agencies to develop more effective employment systems and partnerships. Although research has demonstrated the positive economic and social value of integrated employment, change has been slow. The network is a place where states can connect, collaborate, problem solve and share resources that address the pressing employment-related issues that states face.
