Transition Literature Review: Educational, Employment, and Independent Living Outcomes. Volume 3.
Harnisch, Delwyn L.; Fisher, Adrian T.
This review focuses on both published and unpublished literature in the areas of education, employment, and independent living outcomes across 13 handicapping conditions. Preliminary chapters describe the database system used to manage the literature identified, and discuss research methods in transition literature. Subsequent chapters then review studies of the outcomes of youths with handicaps in the areas of education, employment, and independent living. Following the review chapters, the 120 articles reviewed are listed in an annotated bibliography. A classification system allows specific identification of articles that have a primary focus on any one of the three outcome areas or on any one of 13 handicapping conditions (learning disabilities; speech impairments; mild, moderate, and severe/profound mental retardation; serious emotional disturbance; hearing impairments; orthopedic handicaps; visual impairments; multiple handicaps; other health impairments; deaf-blindness; and educationally at risk). Appendices offer definitions of handicapping conditions and outcome area reference listings (about 250) for articles included in all three volumes of the literature review to date. The database records and programs necessary to run the retrieval system are available on computer disks for use with "dBASE III." (JDD)
