Structured abstract:

Background:  Students connect what they learn in high school to the world of work. The opportunity to work provides high school students a valuable learning experience. They find a purpose for coming to school. For students with disabilities (SWD), a college and career readiness gap exists. SWD are less likely to graduate on time, attend college, or be employed compared to those without a disability (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2021).

Interventions:  Training and technical assistance
Transition services
