About the series:
The KTER Center recently developed two scoping reviews related to pre-employment transition services for students with disabilities, and job-related social communication skills of adults with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The research these reviews identified can inform vocational rehabilitation (VR) services to help clients succeed in getting jobs and keeping them. Tune in to these short, on-demand webcasts to hear the scoping reviews’ findings, methods, and implications for practice.
From October 2008 through September 2013, the NIDILRR funded project, Vocational Rehabilitation Service Models for Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders housed at SEDL, worked to improve employment outcomes for people with autism spectrum disorders by conducting research and disseminating information about effective strategies and services. One activity of this project was identifying effective programs. This guide, published in 2013, discusses the results of that study and outlines effective practices of vocational rehabilitation (VR) vendors.
