Expanded Opportunities for Youth and Adults with Disabilities. Job Training Reform Amendments of 1992.
Policy Update, Spr 1993
This policy update discusses key aspects of the Job Training Reform Amendments of 1992 (Public Law 102-367) that have potential implications for transition services for individuals with disabilities. The discussion focuses on participant eligibility, criteria established for "hard-to-serve" individuals, support for training and employment programs addressing transition, interagency coordination, Private Industry Council membership, performance standards, nondiscrimination protections, and authorization of state-level Human Resource Investment Councils. A table displays state-by-state participation rates for program year 1991, indicating the number of adults and youth who "terminated" from job training programs and the number and percentage of these "terminees" that have disabilities. Strategies for increasing program participation levels among youth and adults with disabilities are outlined. (JDD)
