BBI's Southeast TACE presents on the impact of employment pilot programs
October 2, 2012
The Southeast Technical Assistance and Continuing Education (TACE) Center presented its "Evaluation of the Impact of Pilot Projects on State VR Agencies' Delivery Systems" at the 5th Annual Summit on Vocational Rehabilitation Program Evaluation and Quality. Southeast TACE, based in Atlanta and serving eight southeastern states, is a project of the Burton Blatt Institute (BBI) at Syracuse University. Southeast TACE presented on the effectiveness of its pilot projects, which have resulted in the successful integration of emerging employment practices in Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) systems. A white paper on the findings from this evaluation will be published shortly.
One of Southeast TACE's pilot programs has transformed the lives of young adults in the southeastern United States. The customized employment program was featured in BBI's annual magazine.
The Summit, held in San Antonio, Texas, was sponsored by the Summit Group and the National Rehabilitation Association's Rehabilitation Program Evaluation Network, in collaboration with multiple TACE Centers, the National Clearinghouse of Rehabilitation Training Materials and other partners. Nearly 200 vocational rehabilitation leaders, program managers, and research and evaluation experts attended the event.
