Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Employment Policy for Persons with Disabilities
Over the past several years, a number of new programs, policies, and initiatives designed to promote the employment of people with disabilities have been implemented by state and federal agencies, and are being evaluated to greater and lesser degrees. The purpose of this report is to provide a review of the recent evaluation activities being conducted for these new initiatives, as well as some existing programs that serve people with disabilities. The review is intended to provide policymakers, researchers, and others interested in efforts designed to promote the employment of people with disabilities a single source for information on the nature of the initiatives and the evaluation efforts that have been recently completed or are currently under way and the findings to date related to the effectiveness of these initiatives. This broad review is also intended to provide some evidence of the progress the authors are making. The report also suggests avenues where further efforts and progress might be warranted. Their review focuses on studies and initiatives that: (1) Represent a federally sponsored program, policy, or initiative designed specifically to improve employment of the working-age adult population with disabilities, and (2) Evaluate the effectiveness of the initiative or program (the evaluation must have been completed by 2000, or be pending implementation or completion). (Contains 7 exhibits and 54 footnotes.) [This paper was written with the assistance of Cindy Gruman and Allison Roche.]
