In July 22, 2014, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) was signed into law with bi-partisan congressional support. WIOA expands the provision of VR transition services to students with disabilities to ensure they receive services and training necessary to prepare them to obtain competitive integrated employment or supported employment post-graduation that aligns with their “strengths, resources, priorities, concerns, abilities, capabilities, interests, and informed choice.”
