Washington, D.C. (June 14, 2016) – The Collaboration to Promote Self-Determination (CPSD) today released The Implications of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act for Seamless Transition of Youth with Significant Disabilities, a policy prepared by Richard G. Luecking, Ed.D. The brief highlights how emerging research and models of transition to employment illustrate the possibilities of ensuring that successful adult employment can be more the norm than the exception for youth, aged 14-24 with significant disabilities. Evolving federal transition and disability employment policy also presumes and supports that all individuals with disabilities are employable. The brief illustrates how the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) can create a path to a seamless transition to competitive, integrated employment for youth with significant disabilities.
