Transition Innovations: Promising Vocational Rehabilitation Practices for Youth
Recent federal policy changes require state vocational rehabilitation (VR) agencies to expand service delivery to transition-age youth and young adults with disabilities. These expanded services intend to improve youth’s preparation for college and employment.
On Thursday, April 26, from noon to 1:30 p.m. ET, Mathematica’s Center for Studying Disability Policy will host a live webinar that will explore the impact of these new policy changes.
