CSDP Forum: Barriers and Supports to Employment for State Vocational Rehabilitation Clients
Individuals with a disability are less likely to find and keep jobs than people without disabilities are. Some people with disabilities, however, have more success with employment than their peers do. To better understand the factors that may explain these disparities, the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) sponsored the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Individual-Level Characteristics Related to Employment Among Individuals with Disabilities (IC-RRTC) at the Kessler Foundation.
Join theCenter for Studying Disability PolicyonThursday, June 9, from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. (ET) via live webcast to learn about the IC-RRTC’s latest findings on how employment barriers, facilitators, and outcomes vary for clients of state vocational rehabilitation (VR) agencies. Our presentations will highlight findings from the new Survey of Disability and Employment, a study of 3,000 individuals who applied for state VR services in 2014.
