PROMISE projects found to have positive impact on receipt of transition services among youth with autism spectrum disorder

Mathematica conducted a national evaluation of the PROMISE—Promoting Readiness of Minors in Supplemental Security Income (SSI)—initiative, which consisted of government-supported projects aimed to support youth with disabilities receiving SSI and to facilitate transitions to adulthood. While authors found that there were some transition and family support services available for youth with ASD in the status quo environments, those who participated in PROMISE projects had higher receipt of transition services—especially case management services, employment-promoting services, financial education services, and benefits counseling. #workforce
