This annual directory describes current and newly expired projects funded under the United States Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services' (OSERS) Secondary and Transition Initiative. Project areas include family networking, secondary and transition services follow-up and follow-along projects, training and employment models for youth with handicaps, postsecondary education programs for handicapped persons, innovative programs for severely handicapped children to develop transition skills, models for planning and implementing transitional services for secondary-aged handicapped youth, models for providing secondary mainstreamed learning-disabled and other mildly handicapped students with job-related training, and special projects and demonstrations for providing vocational rehabilitation services to severely disabled individuals. The compendium is divided into six sections: (1) an introduction which describes the Transition Initiative and the role of the Transition Institute at Illinois; (2) a section containing case studies illustrating the impact of transition services upon individuals participating in these federally funded projects; (3) an overview, which describes in tables, figures, and text the characteristics of 94 model projects funded in 1990 in OSERS' competitive selection process; (4) the main section consisting of individual profiles for 1990 projects, profiles of the funding competitions, and profiles of projects that expired in 1989; (5) an index by key personnel, location, and handicapping conditions served; and (6) appendixes which contain project questionnaires and contact information for project directors.
