A Selective Review of the Professional Literature Concerning the Transition Process of Learning Disabled Adolescents and Adults.
A review of the literature about transition from secondary to postsecondary settings for students with learning disabilities (LD) is presented. Reasons are offered for limited empirical longitudinal data about LD adolescents and adults. Studies of the impact of LD on adolescents are grouped into case studies, reports of specific materials or techniques, and discussions of philosophical issues. Trends in the transition literature are noted regarding service delivery models for LD adults in postsecondary settings, including specially trained peer tutors to help LD students in subject areas. Research about vocational rehabilitation's role with LD adolescents and adults is also discussed. The multi-faceted nature of the transition problem is stressed. (CL)
