A brief focusing on coordination and integration of various services (e.g. education, vocational rehabilitation, developmental disabilities) so that youth with disabilities receive continued support to maintain and expand their employment and independent living outcomes throughout adulthood, in addition to accessing other community activities. This brief describes a "blended" service model that addresses this concern. It features a case study example, and discusses implications for implementing similar models in individual schools and developmental disabilities service systems. Additional resources are included.
