Poverty and disability are inexorably linked. However, as a field, the impact of poverty on young adults with disabilities transitioning to adulthood has not been examined. The purpose of this special issue is to draw attention to the critical issues of disability and poverty. Articles highlight both causes and consequences of poverty for young adults with disabilities and describe effective strategies to promote economic equity and self-sufficiency.
