Issue Brief: Employment Programs for Transition-Age Youth with Disabilities that Feature Vocational Rehabilitation Services and Supports: A Literature Review

Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On January 05, 2016 (EST)

The Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) on Vocational Rehabilitation Practices and Youth issued this brief in December 2016. It addresses Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (wIOA) of 2014 that requires state vocational rehabilitation agencies to change the way they work with transition-age youth, including resource allocation, service provision, and outcome tracking.

This issue brief summarizes findings from a search of the peer reviewed and grey literatures for employment-focused transition programs that featured vocational rehabilitation services. Our search found just seven programs across the studies meeting the criteria for inclusion. All seven programs focused on a well-defined population of youth and had varied service models, but all featured interagency collaboration.
