Promising Practices for Basic VR Agencies Helping Transition Age Youth
The Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) monitored 23 state vocational rehabilitation (VR) agencies in FY 2007 as authorized by Section 107 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended. These agencies, their stakeholders, and RSA identified promising practices that provide useful samples of programs and services that promote youth with disabilities transitioning from school to employment. These promising practices are unique to the VR agencies providing the programs and contact information is provided for each practice. Summaries of the practices are below with links for the agencies' websites.
