Recommendations to New York State for strategies to increase access
5. Career Development and Full Employment Opportunity (continued)
- Coordination with existing "placement committees" and local partnerships for workforce investment occurs to assist
in finding employment for candidates, provide internships and/or cooperative experiences. These committees are
networked across the state to allow for information exchange and the mobility of graduates.
- College and university placement offices investigate the full range of state and federal training and placement
programs, such as the federal Workforce Investment Act, in order to leverage maximum resources for job placement and
- New York State's vocational rehabilitation system (VESID, CBVH, and not-for-profit rehabilitation agencies)
develops formal mechanisms to work with postsecondary education institutions to provide technical assistance, support
and guidance in career planning for students with disabilities.
- Colleges and universities, working in partnership with New York State's rehabilitation system, inform employers of
the current federal and state employer tax incentives for employing individuals with disabilities.
