The Secondary to Postsecondary Transition Process for Learning Disabled Adolescents and Adults: An Annotated Bibliography. Supplement #1. A Working Paper.
Price, Lynda; Aune, Betty
The supplement to a previous bibliography lists 39 references concerned with the transition of learning-disabled (LD) students from secondary to postsecondary and work settings. An introduction provides a review of current issues and identifies five assumptions in the literature: (1) the transition process does exist; (2) transition is an important phase in the lives of learning-disabled individuals; (3) support is necessary during this process; (4) learning-disabled adolescents and adults will probably continue to need services throughout their lives; and (5) there are a variety of transition ideologies expressed in the literature. Eight critical questions are identified, including who should be responsible for service delivery and how transition services should be funded. Citations, dated from 1977 through 1987, are listed alphabetically by author, have extensive abstracts as well as availability information, and are coded as to whether they focus on: secondary services/LD adolescents, postsecondary services/LD adults, vocational or job-related skill development, or various other issues and theories dealing with transition. Considered in greater depth are citations considered germane to the LD Transition Project. Appendixes list a variety of related materials and their sources. (DB)
