Webinar: Right on Time? Early Interventions and Initiatives for Promoting Employment
Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On April 18, 2014 (EST)
Mathematica Policy Research (MPR), Center for Studying Disability Policy (CSDP) is holding an Issue Forum and Webinar Presented on May 8, 2014 / Noon – 1:30 PM Eastern Time.
Policies and initiatives have been evolving to promote competitive employment opportunities in which people with disabilities work alongside people without disabilities for at least minimum wage (integrated employment). Efforts are underway in several states to increase integrated employment among individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDDs), for whom employment rates are consistently low.
Panel members will discuss:
• How timely VR service receipt affects the subsequent application to and receipt of SSDI and SSI
• New statistics on employment and SSA benefit receipt for youth ages 16 to 24 who applied for VR services,
including the variation across states
• Barriers that have hindered states' progress toward expanding integrated employment among individuals with IDDs
• Lessons learned that can help states advance their efforts to transform their employment service systems
