The purpose of this presentation is to provide an overview of the current literature in regard to the vocational rehabilitation services found effective in promoting employment among transition-age youth with disabilities as well as identifying factors affecting the effectiveness of those services. Through a three-stage filtering process, 35 studies were identified that helped identify common and effective vocational rehabilitation services for transition-aged youth. Three major themes were observed in the review of literature: validated vocational rehabilitation services, vocational rehabilitation counselor factors, and demographic variables. Implications and recommendations in methodology, consideration for severity, and training for rehabilitation counselors are discussed.
