    This working paper summarizes policies and programs of 10 countries in the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) that aim to improve the transition of youth with disabilities to appropriate and gainful employment. It highlights the following themes: (1) countries have engaged in a range of efforts to promote employment, (2) large-scale pilots have helped identify effective programs, (3) most countries have programs to improve access to adult services for people with disabilities, and (4) all countries have actively pursued ways to coordinate youth and adult services.
