Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2021-2022.

This course provides an overview of state and federal governmental policy and administration that facilitates the inclusion of people with disabilities in the competitive labor market. Topics for the course will include: social security and means-tested entitlements related to disability, workforce development efforts, the state-federal partnership on vocational rehabilitation and training, workers' compensation, return-to-work, competitive integrated employment, and access to healthcare (e.g., Affordable Care Act, Medicaid and Medicare). Students will learn about various "policy experiments" in the United States, from the New Deal to present, as they relate to disability inclusion in the workforce, and will be provided with the tools to critique existing disability and workforce development policy frameworks at both state and national levels to identify areas of improvement and innovation.
