The proposed project will develop VR ROI estimates for specific populations, including youth in transition, individuals with several low-incidence disabilities and individuals with disabilities from minority backgrounds. This project also proposes to test a “turnkey” approach to ROI analysis that can generate rigorous and credible estimates for any size agency, for individuals with virtually any type of disability, and for different types of VR services. A user-friendly Web-based “ROI Estimator” will be developed to allow state agencies to simulate the impact of different VR services on the employment outcomes of VR clients and to develop ROI estimates for the entire state program.
This project is funded by the Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects grant #H133A140095 from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research.
