Community College and Workforce: Disabled Veterans: Transitions to Civilian Life

Many veterans return from the war with disabilities such as post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. Policymakers seek to improve veteran education and rehabilitation to successfully transition them into civilian life and employment. SRI has worked extensively to improve the outcomes of individuals with disabilities. Our researchers can serve as technical experts in consultation with key partners in transferring best practices from the field of special education to adult education, job training, and rehabilitation programs serving veterans.
