Abstract In this series, WAMU 88.5 reporter Martin Austermuhle looks at Forest Haven’s history and the lawsuit that led to its closure, revisits what went wrong after Forest Haven closed and what it took to fix it, and examines what communities across the country are struggling with now: getting more people with intellectual and developmental disabilities into jobs. It’s a trip from institution to inclusion — one that continues today.
