Employment Resources and Professions Available to Disability Studies Graduates

Those with a background in developmental disabilities can work in the healthcare system or the educational system. In the healthcare system, graduates can work as support workers in residential group homes, in hospitals, family homes, and long-term care homes, where they work directly with clients and develop community policy.

In the educational system, graduates can work as instructor therapists, private providers of intensive behavioral intervention, and on school boards. Many choose to focus on autism and work directly with children in the classroom.

Those wishing to remain in research can teach at the post-secondary level, teaching autism studies, psychology, neurology, and children's studies, while at the same time doing research into various developmental disabilities.

A background in developmental disabilities can also lead to a career in psychiatry, nursing, rehabilitation science, counseling, mental health studies, and social work. Graduates can also get a teaching degree and work in special education at the primary and secondary level.
