Today, more than 70% of people with cognitive disabilities are unemployed. Researchers use the term, "the cliff," to denote the drop-off of services to support people through their transition to our tech-driven economy. Ruttenberg and Digitability are working together to change that.

Digitability is the #1 pre-employment transition program that develops a person's interests into marketable skills for a variety of job types, while simultaneously building social and emotional capacity for the workplace.
Social skills, problem solving and self-advocacy do not happen in a silo; therefore they can not be taught in one. Digitability's award-winning program streamlines all of the necessary academic, social/emotional and vocational skills training needed for work-readiness and independence.
