What Are the Trends in Employment Outcomes of Youth with Autism:

In recent years, the number of children with a diagnosis of autism has substantially increased (Baio, 2012). There is a growing interest, therefore, in knowing more about their transition to employment as they reach adulthood. To address this question, we examined the national and state data from the vocational rehabilitation (VR) program for the years 2006 to 2010. Focusing on people with autism who were 16 to 26 years old and unemployed, we set out to describe how many of them sought VR services, received services, and then gained integrated employment. We also looked at earnings and work hours of those employed. To provide some context, we compared the findings for youth with autism with the findings for youth with other disabilities. Moreover, we investigated the data at both the national and state level. For the state-level data, we reported the average across the five years. (12/2012)

The 2010–2011 National Survey of Community Rehabilitation Providers Report 1: Overview of Services, Trends and Provider Characteristics

This the first in a series of research to practice briefs based on the 2010–2011 National Survey of Community Rehabilitation Providers (CRPs) funded by the Administration on Developmental Disabilities and the National Institute for Disability and Rehabilitation Research. This brief presents findings on people with all disabilities and people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) who are served in employment and non-work settings by community rehabilitation providers (CRPs). The last national comprehensive survey of CRPs conducted by the Institute for Community Inclusion was in 2002–2003, and also gathered data on provider services for individuals with disabilities (Metzel et al., 2007). This brief will incorporate some of those findings and compare them against the 2010–2011 survey in order to assess the state of integrated employment outcomes of people with disabilities. (3/2012)
