In selected states, youth ages 14 to 16 who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and their families could take advantage of innovative services and improved service coordination through the Promoting the Readiness of Minors in Supplemental Security Income (PROMISE) demonstration. Early findings on the implementation of PROMISE and its impacts on youth and families during the first 18 months after enrollment provide interesting insights for federal and state partners seeking to help youth with disabilities transition successfully to adulthood.
Mathematica’s Center for Studying Disability Policy will host a webinar on Thursday, April 11, 2019, noon to 1:30 p.m. (EDT), to discuss insights from the PROMISE evaluation.
Topics will include:
- The landscape of transition services for youth with disabilities and the challenges that youth and families face in accessing those services
- Different approaches used by the PROMISE programs to address service-system challenges and improve transition outcomes
- Findings from the 18-month PROMISE impact evaluation
- Perspectives on evaluation findings from the U.S. Department of Education and the Social Security Administration
