This Fast Fact provides a summary of the findings shared in the Annual Report of the Cohort 2 TPSID Model Demonstration Projects (Year 5, 2019–2020). Findings are shared across multiple categories including employment, vocational rehabilitation, academics, academic and employment supports, residential services, program completion and credential attainment, and one-year outcomes. Additionally, there is information about impact of COVID-19 on the data. Conclusions drawn suggest the TPSID model demonstration program has shown that students with intellectual disability can enroll in college, attend courses, and work for competitive wages. The quality of the services provided to students while enrolled in IHEs implementing TPSID programs continues to improve; as do the outcomes of these students.
