Promising Practices and Literature Review

Pre-ETS Notice

The pre-employment transition services section of the WINTAC website is undergoing review and updates based on the recent publication of the Notice of Interpretation (NOI) on Pre-Employment Transition Services in the Federal Register. We wanted to keep the pre-employment transition services information available, but we caution our users to compare the information on the site with information published in the NOI until we have completed our review and revision of the site based on the recent guidance. If you need assistance please feel free to contact the pre-employment transition services WINTAC team: Melissa Diehl @, Christine Johnson @, Brenda Simmons @, Carol Pankow @

Promising Practices

  • CaPROMISE - If I could make changes…this is what I would do! 
    CaPROMISE is one of six projects funded nationally under Promoting the Readiness of Minors in Supplemental Security Income (PROMISE), by the Office of Special Education Programs, Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services, US Department of Education. The goal of CaPROMISE is to increase the self-sufficiency of transition-age youth receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and their families. For the past six years commencing on October 1, 2013, CaPROMISE staff have used a variety of educational, personal, community and work strategies to fulfill this goal and ultimately reverse the cycle of poverty and the adverse impact of disabling conditions for participating youth and their families. This document is a summary of observations, changes made, learning and recommendations for the future.
