Get an overview of the current research in vocational rehabilitation services that are effective in promoting employment among transition-age youth with disabilities. Also identify factors affecting the effectiveness of those services.
Through a three-stage filtering process, 35 studies were identified that helped identify common and effective vocational rehabilitation services for transition-aged youth.
Three major themes were observed in the review of literature:
- validated vocational rehabilitation services,
- vocational rehabilitation counselor factors, and
- demographic variables.
Implications and recommendations in methodology, consideration for severity, and training for rehabilitation counselors are discussed.
