The National Collaborative on Workforce and Disability for Youth (NCWD/Youth) assists state and local workforce development systems to better serve all youth, including youth with disabilities and other disconnected youth. NCWD/Youth works to ensure that transition age youth are provided full access to high quality services in integrated settings to gain education, employment and independent living.
Among NCWD/Youth’s many resources are numerous “Info Briefs” including:
Supporting Families of Students with Disabilities in Postsecondary Education which is intended to create increased understanding of the important role that families can play in the post-secondary success of students with disabilities.
The many other “Info Briefs” Fact Sheets and other publications, all organized by topic, can be found at NCWD/Youth Publications by Topic
