A Roadmap to a 21st-Century Disability Policy for People with Brain Injury and Other Disabilities
AbstractDespite decades of growth in federal disability expenditures, the economic status of people with disabilities has eroded relative to the status of those without disabilities. Rather than tighten eligibility or reduce program benefits to slow expenditure growth, this article outlines an alternative approach consisting of gradual programmatic reforms and evidence-based structural changes to slow federal disability expenditure growth and, at the same time, improve the economic status of people with disabilities.
