This presentation will discuss the findings from a research study that examined the participation of secondary and post-secondary students in work-based learning experiences (WBLE) in four states. WBLE are an innovative solution to preparing students with disabilities for integrated competitive employment. The results presented will address (a) the characteristics (i.e. gender, race, grade, level of intellectual disability) of students who participated in WBLE, (b) the types of WBLE in which students participated, (c) the average amount of time (hours per week, weeks) students spent in WBLE, (d) the extent to which student characteristics relate to the type of WBLE in which they participated, and (e) the extent to which student characteristics relate to the amount of time students spent in each type of WBLE.
