This report assesses the efficacy of specific types of school-based and work-based initiatives on students with disabilities. Data analysis was conducted with national longitudinal data. The results suggest that the various initiatives (job shadowing, mentoring, internships, career major etc) effectively facilitate vocational success for this population. School-based programs were associated with stable and full-time employment, and work-based programs typically increased the likelihood that youth with disabilities will gain employment with fringe benefits.
