WCCO Television’s four-part television series "The Hidden World of Autism" featured the chair of the Minnesota Governor’s Council on Developmental Disabilities and one of the Council members discussing the challenge of employment and the success of the document imaging program.
Shamus O'Meara, former Chair of the Governor's Council on Developmental Disabilities, says implementing more vocational services and letting people know about the services that already exist, are goals for the state of Minnesota.
"There is now leadership on these issues and getting the word out to parents and caregivers about those programs."
"Even assembling a single resource guide for people with developmental disabilities has taken years but there is finally a result and people with autism helped put it together through a unique digital imaging program conceived by the Governor's Council."
"Technology, when used in the right way, is a great equalizer for people in the disabilities community."
