Webinar: What Works for Youth Tracking Vocational Rehabilitation Outcomes
This webinar is hosted by Mathematica Policy Research, Center for Studying Disability Policy and will be held on
April 27, 2017 / Noon – 1:30 PM Eastern Time.
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. Mathematica’s 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.
