Transforming Disability Policy for Youth and Young Adults withDisabilities. Disability Policy Research Brief. Number 09-01 by Bonnie O'Day( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The transition to adulthood can be difficult for youth, particularly those who have disabilities severe enough that they receive Supplemental Security Income (ssi), Social Security Disability Insurance (di), or other disability program benefits. Besides the issues facing all transition-age youth, young people with disabilities face a host of special challenges: health problems, social isolation, service needs, and lack of supports. These challenges complicate their planning for the future and often lead to poor educational and employment outcomes, long-term dependency, and a lifetime of poverty. In this policy brief, the authors highlight the importance of improving transition policy for youth with disabilities, review lessons from recent research, and consider transformative policy changes and why and how such changes might be tested. (Contains 4 footnotes.)
The Social Security Administration's Youth Transition DemonstrationProjects: Implementation Lessons from the Original Projects by John Martinez( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
This report focuses on the seven original Youth Transition Demonstration (ytd) projects selected for funding in 2003. Three of the original seven projects were selected for a national random assignment evaluation in 2005; however, this report only focuses on program operations prior to joining the random assignment evaluation for the three projects and all operations for the remaining four original projects. The seven original projects have been in existence for up to six years, during which they have accumulated a rich history that includes both notable achievements and disappointments. Based on our compilation and analysis of that history, we have identified a number of lessons regarding the design and implementation of employment-focused interventions for youth with disabilities. The presentation of these lessons constitutes the core of this report. Appendix a documents the use of Social Security Administration work incentives and ytd waivers by participants in the seven original ytd projects who received either Supplemental Security Income or Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. (Contains 12 tables and 21 footnotes.)
