Moving Ahead with PROMISE: Lessons Learned from Six Model Demonstration Projects Through the Promoting Readiness of Minors in Supplemental Security Income Project
This report from ICI and partners documents lessons learned from model demonstrations projects (MDPs) nationwide who tested an intervention for support transition-age youth who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) which focused on employment and post-secondary education. The report was developed by ICI with the Association of University Centers on Disabilities as part of the PROMISE Technical Assistance Center. The PROMISE TA Center provided assistance to the six MDPs with information about interventions and supports for SSI eligible youth and their families, and connected the MDPs in order to create the best possible outcomes for youth and their families. This report outlines key lessons in working collaboratively across systems to support transition-age youth with disabilities who receive SSI and their families.
