What Works for Youth? Tracking Vocational Rehabilitation Outcomes (MA UCEDD/LEND)

June 12, 2017

On April 27 in Washington, DC, Mathematica's Center for Studying Disability Policy hosted a policy forum and live webinar teaching about how to track vocational rehabilitation (VR) outcomes. A panel of experts, including researchers and practitioners, presented and discussed new evidence on long-term outcomes of VR youth applicants; the Maryland Seamless Transition Collaborative's VR process and outcomes; and employment outcomes of post-secondary youth with intellectual or developmental disabilities.

The Institute for Community Inclusion's Meg Grigal was on an invited panel of presenters and discussed The Role and Impact of Vocational Rehabilitation in Inclusive Higher Education for Students with Intellectual Disability and Autism. The inclusion of Think College on a national panel helps to increase the visibility of the the ICI, and the topic of inclusive higher education for people with intellectual disability.
