My brother has worked in a sheltered program all his life. But my former employer had several employees with disabilities. Both the employer and the supportive professionals did an exceptional job assisting these employees. For some, it worked reasonably well. For others, it was exceptionally difficult for all involved, particularly when the disabled person was unable to self-protect in an unsupervised setting involving the public (lunch/coming to and leaving work.) An unsuccessful conclusion is particularly difficult.
