Helping Veterans with Disabilities Transition to Employment
Ruh, Debra; Spicer, Paul; Vaughan, Kathleen
Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v22 n1 p67-74 2009
Veterans with disabilities constitute a vast, capable, deserving, and under-utilized workforce, and many successful hiring campaigns have targeted the employment of veterans. Colleges offering comprehensive, individualized transitional services have proven successful in supporting veterans with disabilities reentering the civilian workforce. With the incorporation of learning models and reasonable academic adjustments to educational pedagogies and policies, veterans can be poised to successfully transition from college to the workforce. Disability Service (DS) offices can serve as an important bridge between the disability and career transition needs of these students. Specific suggestions are offered to increase collaboration with career offices to enhance the transition to employment.
