Live Webinar

Still time to register for the webinar.

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. The webinar will specifically highlight effective VR service practices and the challenges that state VR agencies face in adhering to new federal mandates related to transition-age youth.

The webinar will feature a panel of experts with extensive experience on issues related to transition, VR, and employment for people with disabilities. The panel will present and discuss the following:

  • Effective VR practices identified by VR counselors from agencies with strong transition outcomes
  • A case study on effective partnerships between VR and higher education programs for students with intellectual disabilities and autism
  • Early implementation experiences of VR agencies with pre-employment transition services

The panel speakers will include:

  • Todd Honeycutt, (Moderator), Mathematica Policy Research
  • Rich Luecking, University of Maryland
  • Meg Grigal, Institute for Community Inclusion, University of Massachusetts
  • Purvi Sevak, Mathematica Policy Research
  • David Test, (Discussant), University of North Carolina at Charlotte

We hope you will join us for this event!
