Working My Way Through High School: The Impact of Paid Employment on Transitioning Students with Disabilities
MetadataShow full item record
The Policy Brief “Working My Way Through High School: The Impact of Paid Employment on Transitioning Student with Disabilities” reviews research that began in the early 1980s and continues to this day that demonstrates how this practice leads to higher employment rates for our graduates. Nine studies were chosen for this literature review, all of which were quantitative in nature. Five of these studies were longitudinal samples where graduates with disabilities and their significant people were interviewed to collect comparative data about their current status, and to discover what factors supported positive outcomes in employment, postsecondary education and community living. The remaining four studies where based on interventions for groups of students, measuring the results in the short term and at some point in the future. All of these studies in some way address work experiences for students with disabilities as a part of their inquiry; eight of the nine studies specifically address the issue of paid employment while in school.
