Five Transition Policy Studies Including Pertinent Literature Synthesis. Project TROPHY. Transition Research on Problems of Handicapped Youth.
Schill, William J.; And Others
The first of five studies in this monograph, "Transition Policies for Youth with Disabilities: Now a Question of Implementation" (Joseph Stowitschek), presents results of a study to determine priority areas for policy analysis among the issues identified in the literature on the school-to-work transition of individuals with disabilities. "Transitional Planning Methods and Progress: A National Study" (Stowitschhek, David Brown) describes a study to provide a base of information on formal transition plans of state agencies responsible for educational, transitional, and adult services for handicapped persons. "Are We in Danger of Making the Same Mistakes with ITPs as Were Made with IEPs?" (Stowitschek, Cheryl Kelso) examines the problems of individual education plan (IEP) use, compares it to the developing use of individual transition plans (ITPs), and recommends policy and procedural changes and research directions. "Washington Job Development Strategies Survey" (Robert Williams; Stowitschek) describes a survey of directors and job developers of rehabilitation programs to obtain information regarding perceptions and practices in their efforts to place developmentally disabled people in supported work situations. "Administrator's Perceptions of Early Work Experiences for Youth with Mild Disabilities" (Stowitschek) describes a preliminary inquiry into administrative and personnel conditions that could influence the enhancement of work experiences.
