Office of Disability Employment Policy Releases Literature Review of Five Federal Systems Serving Transition Age Youth with Disabilities

To support the development of an interagency strategy to improve transition results for youth with disabilities, the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) funded the development of a literature review that focuses on five federal systems that play key and inter-related roles in preparing youth with disabilities as they transition into adulthood: vocational rehabilitation, social security, juvenile justice, behavioral health, and workforce investment.
