For Youth with Disabilities Seeking Employment, Work Experience May Matter More Than School Factors

A study funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).

Young adults with disabilities are less likely to find employment than young adults without disabilities, and those youth with disabilities who are employed may earn less than their peers without disabilities. Unemployment and under-employment rates are especially high for young women with disabilities and some ethnic minority youth, such as African Americans.
