This book looks at the current status of our efforts to achieve this goal by examining the following areas: emerging best practices in employment, the return-to-work process for disability beneficiaries, transition planning, vocational assessment and preparation, supports in competitive employment, postsecondary education, service learning, and planning and supporting employment.
