Services for Youth with Disabilities after Secondary School. A Special Topic Report from the National Longitudinal Transition Study of Special Education Students.
Marder, Camille; And Others
This report uses data from the National Longitudinal Transition Study of Special Education Students (NLTS) to look at the adult service experiences of young people with disabilities in their first 5 years after leaving secondary school. It focuses on five broad categories of service: (1) vocational assistance; (2) life skills training or occupational therapy; (3) help from a tutor, reader, or interpreter; (4) personal counseling or therapy; and (5) physical therapy or mobility training. The report also looks at the participation of youth in supervised living arrangements and programs in activity centers. Each of the five services is examined in terms of three concerns: the percentage of youth needing services and receiving them; characteristics of youth associated with the need for and receipt of services; and people providing the services. Then the report examines the frequency with which services were sought by/for youth but not received. The report concludes by examining possible associations between transition planning in secondary school and receipt of services after secondary school. A chapter discusses methodological issues, and an appendix details the procedure used to estimate standard errors. (Contains 30 references.) (DB)
