NPR: Why Disability And Poverty Still Go Hand In Hand 25 Years After Landmark Law

This National Public Radio (NPR) article/blog highlights the personal aspects of disability, employment and economic well-being that still require attention 25 years following the passage of the ADA. It profiles the experience of 27-year-old Emeka Nnaka of Tulsa, Oklahoma who a semi-pro football player who was injured during a game and challenges he faces in reaching his goals. If you have a disability in the U.S., you're twice as likely to be poor as someone without a disability. You're also far more likely to be unemployed. And that gap has widened in the 25 years since the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act was enacted. The employment rate for working age people with disabilities is 14.4% compared to 71.2% for those without a disability and the poverty rate is 32.1% compared to 13% for those without a disability. Median household income is $30,600 compared to $58,400 for those without a disability.

NCD Report: "Breaking the School-to-Prison Pipeline for Students with Disabilities"

On June 18, 2015, the National Council on Disability (NCD) released a report examining the policies and practices that push the nation’s schoolchildren, especially those most at risk, out of classrooms and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems, and asks and answers whether existing federal laws offer ways to disrupt this pattern, which has come to be known as the “School-to-Prison Pipeline.” In conjunction with its fall quarterly meeting, NCD convened a stakeholder forum in Atlanta in October 2014 to receive testimony on the role of special education in the School-to-Prison Pipeline. The findings and recommendations in the “Breaking the School-to-Prison Pipeline” report are based upon the culmination of that testimony, interviews with experts, and review of available research. As a result of its research, NCD has concluded that the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) can and should be an important part of the solution to the Pipeline crisis, and thus the report’s recommendations focus on ways to improve existing special education delivery and enforcement systems to better meet the needs of students with disabilities, and particularly of students with disabilities of color.

MPR Report: The National Evaluation of the Money Follows the Person (MFP) Demonstration Grant Program

In May 2015, Mathematica Policy Research (MPR) issued this report on MFP demonstration that supports efforts to help Medicaid beneficiaries living in long-term care facilities transition back to the community. The six MFP grantees highlighted in this study offer several lessons that can help other states enhance their program models to better serve people with diverse support needs. Factors that contribute to successful program performance include (1) thorough identification of a person's needs and preferences early in the transition process to help facilitate timely linkages to services in the community and avoid reinstitutionalization; (2) flexible MFP grant funds that enable MFP grantees to test new services or supports that help to better meet participants' support needs in the community; (3) quality monitoring systems to track participants' outcomes in the community; and (4) strong partnerships with stakeholders, which lead to close coordination in service delivery and propel system transformation efforts forward.
