In an effort to identify better strategies to help young people with #disabilities #transition from school to work, last month, the U.S. Departments of Labor, Education and Health and Human Services as well as the Social Security Administration kicked off a two-week online survey for the purpose of seeking public input from policymakers, educators, service providers, families and youth with disabilities themselves to share their thoughts on how to improve transition outcomes.
The hope is to learn about legislative barriers these young people are facing in accessing #employment, education, Social Security and health and human services. Although a step in the right direction, I believe a better approach, at least for issues accessing employment, would be to have on-line and/or in-person sessions where the youth with disabilities and employers engage one-another on these most important topics.
