Vocational Rehabilitation Services Received by Youth with Autism: Are They Associated with an Employment Outcome? Research to Practice. Issue 48
Lugas, Jaime; Timmons, Jaimie; Smith, Frank A.
Institute for Community Inclusion
While youth with autism represent a small percentage of all vocational rehabilitation (VR) closures, the number who closed out of VR more than tripled between 2003 and 2008 (see "Institute for Community Inclusion Data Note 26"). As increasing numbers of youth with autism are accessing VR services, it is important to understand how they are using these services and the relationship of these services to outcomes and costs. The purpose of this brief is to: (1) Determine differences in services received by youth with autism compared to youth with other disabilities; (2) Identify services that are most closely associated with an employment outcome for youth with autism; and (3) Establish if large percentages of the group are receiving these successful services. (Contains 3 tables.)
