Description: 

Recent federal policy changes require vocational rehabilitation (VR) agencies to increase services for youth transitioning into adulthood, but we have only limited information on the effectiveness and outcomes of these services. To develop a better understanding of what works and for whom, Mathematica partnered with TransCen, the University of Maryland, and the Institute for Community Inclusion to examine the employment outcomes for the wide range of youth who receive VR services.    On April 27 from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. (ET), Mathematica’s Center for Studying Disability Policy will host a policy forum and live webinar on this issue. A panel of experts, including researchers and practitioners, will present and discuss new evidence on

  • Long-term outcomes of VR youth applicants
  • The Maryland Seamless Transition Collaborative’s VR process and outcomes
  • Employment outcomes of post-secondary youth with intellectual or developmental disabilities
