What Works for Youth? Tracking Vocational Rehabilitation Outcomes


Thursday, April 27, 2017
12:00 P.M. to 1:30 P.M. EST


Cost: Free


Format: Webinar


Where: Online/Web-based


Sponsored By:

Mathematica Center for Studying Disability Policy in partnership with TransCen, University of Maryland, and Institute for Community Inclusion

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. (EDT), the Mathematica 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 youth who apply for VR services
  • The Maryland Seamless Transition Collaborative VR process and outcomes
  • Employment outcomes of post-secondary youth with intellectual or developmental disabilities

The panel will include:

  • Jody Schimmel Hyde (Moderator), Mathematica
  • Todd Honeycutt, Mathematica
  • Ellen Fabian, University of Maryland
  • Meg Grigal, Institute for Community Inclusion
  • Andrea Guest (Discussant), Delaware Division of Vocational Rehabilitation
