Transition Literature Review Educational, Employment, and Independent Living Outcomes, Volume 2.
Harnisch, Delwyn L.; And Others
Intended for researchers, policy analysts, and practitioners, the book provides a review of 176 documents (both published and unpublished) focusing on education, employment, and independent living outcomes across ten handicapping conditions. The first chapter provides an introduction to the project to review the extant literature on the subject. The next chapter describes the conceptual framework used to organize the literature and outlines procedures used to locate relevant literature. Chapter 3 describes the database system used and the development of the review work sheet. Chapter 4 summarizes results concerning educational outcomes in a review of concepts of educational outcomes, a sample description, a synthesis of the literature on educational outcomes, and suggestions for future research. Employment outcomes are considered next with a discussion of categories of outcomes, a sample, a literature synthesis, and suggestions for research. Independent living is reviewed in a similar fashion in the following chapter. The final chapter provides a summary of all three areas across the handicapping conditions. The major portion of the document consists of the annotated bibliography of reviewed articles listed alphabetically by author. In addition to bibliographic information, each citation includes data on handicapping condition and severity, the article's primary focus, and an abstract. (DB)
