Transition Policies Affecting Services to Youth with Serious Emotional Disabilities. Youth in Transition Project.
Koroloff, Nancy M.; Modrcin, Matthew J.
This monograph examines ways in which state level policies have facilitated the orderly planning and delivery of transition services for youth with serious emotional disorders. It describes the categories of policies (legislative acts and interagency agreements) and analyzes six categories of policy content. Nine components necessary in a comprehensive transition policy that supports the needs of youth with serious emotional disabilities are discussed. The final section of the monograph contains a summary of the transition policies collected from 17 states and presents copies of the policy documents. States included are Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Illinois, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Washington. For each state, the monograph describes relevant policies, parties involved, purpose, process, relevance to children with emotional disabilities, and contact person. (12 references) (JDD)
