The rate of people with disabilities who are attempting and attending post-secondary education has been rising over the past ten years (Stokes & Lyhus, 2006). Given the trends for non-disabled citizens, it would be fair to anticipate that those individuals with disabilities who obtain post-secondary degrees will be more successful in obtaining and maintaining competitive employment. Unfortunately while these degrees do increase employment among PWD’s without post-secondary degrees, it does not happen at the rate in which PWOD’s are able to enjoy (Erickson & Lee, 2008). The Pennsylvania Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) provides a valuable service, facilitating this transition for people of all ages, types of disability and education level. In order to shed some light on the efficacy of this program, statistics were collected from the RSA 911 database for 2009, and analyzed by selecting specific variables and comparing successful versus unsuccessful outcomes.
