Leach, Lynda N.
This directory describes current and newly expired projects funded under the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services' Secondary Education and Transition Initiative. An introduction describes the Transition Initiative and the role of the Transition Institute at the University of Illinois. A series of one-page case studies describes 68 projects that provide direct service to young adults with disabilities, focusing on postsecondary demonstration projects, family networking, training and employment models, and self-determination skill development. Following an overview of projects, a project profiles section presents descriptions of both current and recently expired transition projects, grouped according to the competition under which they received their grant award. The competitions included are: demonstration projects to identify and teach skills necessary for self-determination, family networking, secondary and transition services follow-up and follow-along projects, training and employment models, postsecondary demonstration projects, models for planning and implementation of transitional services, 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. Indexes provide access to projects' titles, key personnel, locations, and disabilities served; and appendices contain copies of survey forms. (JDD)
